One other I see is OpenMAX + Gstreamer versus pure Gstreamer versus OpenCORE. I guess the generic use case I see there is being able to identify what sort of software components the hardware pack provides support for -- a hardware pack for X would require some X-specific glue code that wouldn't be required in a different environment.
Note that even X/no-X may be simplistic, because the no-X case can be varied and potentially require different contents in the hardware packs.
So would it be simpler to just allow exclusion of specific packages from the hardware pack? As written there are likely to be less than 10 packages, and all the combinations of tags is going to far exceed that.
