Now I see where this idea comes from.
Ray, Stephen, structuring shuch information is really a bad idea.
The Rx/Tx functions are not like capabilities, they are full of smart
tricks written by brillant engineers. Please do not try to put ideas
in some categories. We will have more and more new types of optimization
and ideas when the hardware will evolve.

And, more importantly, there is no need of automation or processing
with this information.
