Right, I see at least 2 actionable items:

* "The Checklist" which everyone making a syscall should
follow and we create the checklist with input from both
sides and it becomes the thing you reference e.g.
"Did you follow the checklist? Where is X?"

* Programmatic / Machine readable description of syscalls.
This way the kernel gives users the ability to autogenerate
all the wrappers *if they want to* in a consistent way that
matches this syscall description format.
