Neither of your options tackles the real problem. That is: We have
interfaces that use binary SPD data. It's just stupid. We can just put
the data in a struct and never use binaries.

Well, we have raminit code that we can not fix, i.e. the BLOBs. So, if
anything we should write serialization that takes a struct and generates
the binary during runtime. Yeah, more BLOB wrapping code!

And if we're going to write a tool, it should work the other way around:
deserializing an SPD binary, generating the code to fill the struct.
