the problem also is, that it would take even more space. though we can
come up with a list of additional packages that would improve hardware

independently of that: note that oot modules can only be included in
official images if they are precompiled as a binary package (in case you
don't know about conglomeration packages, see
for the background of why we're doing it that way in debian).
