This is my position as well, until proven that this cannot be done.
In device tree the same mechanism is called "device tree overlays"
and I just have some vague feeling that such stuff is patched around in
some Intel platforms already, but maybe that involves replacing
the whole DSDT from userspace, surely the mechanism can be
refined?
