You could put all HAL drivers in a separate drivers directory and call those drivers "unsupported" (and taint the kernel like what happens with binary-only drivers, etc.). And since the driver is GPL'ed, someone motivated can always hack up a non-HAL driver based on the vendor driver. Then, let darwinism do its thing.
IMHO, outright rejecting HAL drivers is just silly, another example of zealotry that does not help Linux in the long run.
