Absolutely.  Then the needed information would be available
automatically for any apt user, and hw-detect in d-i can use it to
find firmware packages, even for non-official packages from
non-official apt sources. :)

And the isenkram package would be able to use this too after
installation, if some firmware is needed to handle hotplugged hardware.

Happy hacking
