Inevitable someone will do cut down version of EOMA.
It wrecks interchangeability.
But as its inevitable, you might as well recommend
something for its infrastructure into the EOMA fold such as naming
derivatives e.g. EOMA68-Sata which reads EOMA68 minus Sata.
A plastic EOMA68+Wifi is possible.

Hopefully no one will make the jump and call it an EOMA69 and market
the EOMA68 as something lesser for the self employed.
