Yes, in the end it looks like something like that.

I understand that now that we have Mach, we want to build something once,
so the (micro-)kernel has to be the good one from the start.
This seems to be a good plan to me.

Since we were able to try things with the previous kernels (and I'm sure
people did things themselves), ideas can be categorized into good/bad,
easy/hard/impossible, and finally wanted/not wanted.
Once this is done, things can be built one step after another; architecture
of the different parts, design, and so on.

That's how I'd do things. Yes, I know, this is just like software engineering,
but usually it works in the end.
Sadly I don't have time to do this kind of things (right now, maybe someday).
