Driver API anyone?

I suppose I'll be tarred and feathered for suggesting that stable device API's would go a long way towards making backporting drivers easy. If the point is to change part of the kernel while leaving the rest alone, shouldn't there be a distinct boundary between them with a clear contract? Then an "out of tree" driver can be a driver from a future kernel release.
