   Not that I can see.  It seems stupid to have to defined MIDs for ELF
   only platforms.

how much extra work is this?  `netbsd-core' support is well supported by
the toolchain currently.  what are the gains?  i can see getting rid of
needing new MID's as being a good thing, but that seems fairly minor to
the effort required to port everything across (but the size of that effort
isn't well known, at least to me.)
