xxxVERBOSE module?

From the comments in the GENERIC config files, the primary reason for omitting the various xxxVERBOSE options is to avoid including large text tables in the resulting kernel. And I vaguely recall some spirited discussion back when the change was made to exclude these options by default.

Now that we have MODULAR kernels (at least on some architectures), I've been wondering if it might make sense to create a mod_verbose that could be loaded during start-up time and then unloaded after the machine is up and running. (For plug-and-play situations, such as USB, the module could be reloaded and unloaded whenever a new device is added.)

Is this something that would be useful?
