Dropping defconfigs causes one new problem: no longer is it practical to just take a kernel tree and build for a board; you've got to do a bunch of homework to find some board-specific config working with that board. Consult lots of board docs (if you can even find them!) and enable all the board-specific hardware. Workable, yes, but this creates new obstacles for embedded developers. And they have too many of them already.
