I don't think so, because:
1. When I got freebios, I really ripped the guts out and then added
what was then LinuxBIOS v0 to it.
2. FreeBIOS does not imply linux, and linuxbios should (but does not always)

It's confusing.

One thing we could do is say that freebios is what you get when you
take linux out of linuxbios. So we have this:

foundation: freebios

payload: linux ==> means you have linuxbios

and so on.
