I understand that since I'm working on an experimental protocol myself.

I'm only the messenger here. As I understand it (and I could be wrong)
Linux deals with the cases fairly well that ABC is trying to solve. To
get ABC into the kernel by default some of the other code would have
to be changed and nobody has done that yet. If someone does that and
can convince others it can go back in..
