I thought we were talking about binary only modules and ndiswrapper? In that light I don't see how that construction could be in anyway better than when pushed to userspace. Currently closed source kernel modules from ATI and Nvidia should also be put into userspace with no more than a tiny kernel module handling the necessary, IMHO.
Those drivers want to talk to their hardware, not to the rest of the kernel which they shouldn't know or care about.
