Another key point is:

- _un_sophisticated is the norm, and anybody who expects otherwise is
living in some odd la-la-land together with his or her pink unicorn and
endless supplies of quaaludes.

The thing is, we have about a metric sh*tload of drivers, and many of them
are effectively written by people who don't really do kernel work, and are
basically unmaintained in the long run (ie they may be maintained while
written, but two years down the line they have a couple of hundred users
and nobody who really cares about it, because the original author long
since moved on to fancier hardware).
