A certain major OEM requires its server component vendors to provide any required out-of-tree modules as DKMS packages. If Debian were to include DKMS that would make it easier for users to set up their $OEM systems if they include components that aren't supported by a stable release. Note, we would also need to ensure that alien does a good job with DKMS RPMs. Ben.
