Who's "we"?  There are multiple completely unique rootfs' out there in
common use today.  Interestingly, one more totally unique rootfs was
just introduced by the Openmoko kernel developers themselves, not more
than a couple of weeks ago!

That's not a problem I guess; diversity is good!  But it does indicate
that any assumption that "if it's not in the rootfs that *we* ship, then
it doesn't matter" may not be a good thing.  After all, as we've already
observed, what if Android decides to use APM?  :-D Best not to be too
hasty to throw it out!

(BTW, I'm no fan of APM myself, I'm just pointing out that there may be
others, who are not on this list, who might be disappointed and
surprised at some date to learn that APM has been summarily dumped.)
