Would not that make keeping track of the previous and future history
harder for people contributing to these drivers? I could imagine that
for Arend and other Broadcom engineers, dealing with a simple level move
would be manageable, but having to account for a different directory
hierarchy could be a pain.

What is the impact on compat-wireless after/before these changes by the way?
