It would be best if the BIOS just did this all for us. But, what you're
describing would take years to get from concept to showing up in
someone's hands. I'd rather not wait.

Plus, doing it the way I suggested gives the OS the most control. The
BIOS isn't in the critical path to do the right thing.
