So, when can we expect a coherent, full proposal (with overview of 
benefits, possible pitfalls, things that need to be worked out further, 
and so on) on this in a dedicated mail on a new thread to the relevant 
mailing lists, so we can actually comment on it instead of only seeing a 
rough outline mentioned every so often as part of a flame?

(Without the "current method sucks" comments please; saying "I think the 
current situation could be improved by..." is much more likely to get 
positive reactions.)

You forget the argument that when kernel udebs are maintained within d-i, 
we will be much more likely to spot changes in them as a possible cause 
of breakage when installation-reports come in.
