Why does the driver interface have to change from kernal release to
release anyway?
Maybe you might want to check out if that actually happens before
running your mouth/fingers about it.
You can get a pretty good hint from the number of complaints about 
nvidia, ati, and vmware drivers after fedora kernel updates.
Develop a universal driver interface and leave it alone, then the
hardware vendors will not have to keep re-inventing the wheel
everytime a new version of the kernal comes out.
You assume they do. Any evidence?
That's one of the biggest difference between fedora and RHEL - and why 
RHEL is worth more.  RHEL makes the effort to freeze the interface so 
third party modules continue to work after a kernel update within the 
same major version.
