Indeed. Nonetheless some things are missing:

 * there is no interrupt handling code doing the things you described
 * the ide driver is not fully working yet
 * boot support is incomplete on x86 and amd64
 * there is no pci driver/device node yet
 * there is no linuxbios table parsing yet
 * lots of things with less priority

I've enabled a snapshot to be created every 4h at
http://www.openbios.org/snapshots/ for now. There will probably be an
arch repository for openbios soon.
