Yes, you're of course right and Phil Mayers mentioning the memory
protection is also right, but... let us move our rants toward different
direction if there's nothing we can do to make the change :)

IOS-XE, or more appropriately IOSd blob that is executed by underlying
kernel is already quite advanced in terms of capability to modularize,
and even when it's executed like today with two separate IOSd's to
maintain redundancy, it behaves "usually" right.

We'll see in a year or so what good comes from that direction.
