No reason to be dismissive, my questions are valid.

What "use-cases" are we talking about, I have firmware that doesn't need
specific carved-out addresses. If you have misbehaving firmware that
needs statically carved out memory addresses then you can have carveouts
if you want, but it should be optional. If I don't want to pollute my
system's memory space with a bunch of carveout holes then I shouldn't
have to just because your specific firmware needs them.
