OpenMoko is a platform for (in the future) many devices... Don't think 
You can assume too much anyway. I'm happy with a sd slot (or even, but 
less happy, with one more but external micro sd slot).

Supporting binary drivers for third party extensions is a lot less evil 
than including stuff that need binary drivers.

... but it depends on if it is realistic to get an external slot into 
the phone.
