Oh,yes. I'm not suggesting we do it late in the -rc cycle.

I just don't think the DMI table is a good idea, so in the longer run I
wan tto get rid of it, rather than have it grow (by quite a few entries,
in this case).

There are valid reasons for DMI tables in many cases, but in this case I
think the reason is simply that we do the wrong thing, so then we ended up
with a DMI table to "fix" the wrong thing we do.
