Since you *still* don't see the point, when a device is going to use a
decoder, for one chip to use foo API and bar API for another chip and
when the chip[ which is classified under the foo API is used under the
bar application.

This is what i mentioned earlier

When the same chip appears to used somewhere else , you are suggesting
to rewrite apps to support foo and bar API 's for a similar category
of chips. (This is of course craziness)
