How would this interact with the proposal for storing some of this
information in hwpacks?
Does it imply that hwpacks aren't quite the right place for this? Should
they instead just contain an indication of which boards are supported
and information about the contents (such as the u-boot path), and the
rest of the information lives outside of the hwpack?
