I'm not even sure they don't go crazy when given 3.3V :-)

Actually the list of IO_3V3 customers is knowable:
- CPU IO voltage (separate from core voltage)
- CPU RTC rail for some reason
- CPU ADC rail
- Audio AMP
- USB Host pwr control
- Motion sensor IO (not core)
- Glamo IO (not core)
- WLAN module power
Plus various static pullups on Open Drain lines not being used at that time.
Its a continuum -- we can pull it to 3.0V okay because that is inside
+/- 10%. What happens at 2.7, at 1.8... shouldn't we test it? :-)
