  | That is
  |  a) no use if you don't get back to SRM after "halt"ing netbsd

Sure - but that is another problem (could even be related) that needs fixing.
I have had that happen, but only very rarely, most times SRM comes back.

  |  b) no more or less work than setting them after power-on

If only one needs to be set to cause a checksum to be recalculated and
saved, then it is less work, as they all need to be set again after a power on 
in the "bad" state.   I suspect the "reset any one" is true, but I don't
have any really good date for this yet.
