I strongly disagree. It would be very nice to simply know that the
feature is there for machines where the hardware doesn't support
it. Then things like console feepers can rely on the capability.

Userland really isn't suited to this task well anyway -- the existing
daemons for things like KDE work poorly in my experience.
