In a perfect world, it might be "neat," but i don't think it's
necessary and may not even be possible. I'm not sure that i wouldn't
call this "silly." 8-)
On systems which can run multiple vendor OSes, are the NVRAM formats
even consistent? (Why would you make them consistent, and not simply
have them be a convenient format for that native OS?)
