I'm just trying to clarify if this is beautification or has any functional
dependencies. From your words, there doesn't seem to be a standard for reporting
battery technology among battery vendors, so there will always be some creative
spellings HAL won't recognize. If that merely means that some GUI shows me
"unknown technology" or something, that's fine. OTOH, if there's program logic
based on this property and unrecognized technology means loss of functionality
to me, then we're getting ourselves into trouble by creating an illusion of
order in an inherently chaotic system.
