All good points. Just writing about something that’s bothering me.

This module load/assembly library is an essential part of the whole architecture. And the only ones who have something like this are IBM in their mainframe systems. And they have full vertical integration and vast resources and a very specialized market.
Getting something like this to work and accepted in a diverse ecosystem with many more or less independent parties will be one of the crucial details.
This is code that will have to be on every system in a very pivotal position. So that better be fully open source with a liberal license and very adaptable. Neither Microsoft and Apple nor the Linux and BSD people would accept anything less and have a piece of code that they have no control over in the center of their systems.
