Basically I'd rather we modelled some bit of real hardware.
I don't see the point in providing a model of somebody
else's model -- if you don't care about matching real
hardware we have 'virt' already. So I don't really want
to model either the Foundation Platform or the AEM,
unless there's a really compelling reason to do that.
