I think that we should require ACPI compliance as it is an integral
part of modern computing on X86 hardware, and it makes enumeration
significantly more efficient or just plain possible in some cases.

Also, I think that we need to be quite careful about overloading our
users with information. Otherwise, out users will be overwhelmed and
will not understand everything that we try to communicate with them.
