I think it should work for any class devices (ie, /sys/class/net) which
don't have an associated sysdevice (/sys/devices/pciblahblahblah). My
main focus was on PCMCIA network cards.

Bluetooth I think definitely fits within the scope of HAL, but it's not
real high on my radar right now. Last I looked the bluetooth stuff was
crazy hard to set up and I gave up on it pretty quickly.
As for zeroconf/slp... I'm not so sure about that stuff...
