Re: Architecture extension proposal for ConfigPtr CSR to "Unified RISC-V Discovery Method" config structure

so how do we communicate this to the world?
csr is an ISA extension
config tab is a software only Non-ISA doc rule required only by a platform spec?
So could you do discovery in some other way and be profile compatible but not platform compatible?
or since this is a hybrid spec with ISA and non-ISA and gets ratified together it is different? (btw The new regs already cover this kind of doc). Would we want the policy to say that extensions ratified in a hybrid spec require the implementer to implement both ISA and non-ISA to claim RISC-V compatible?
I am the first one in favor of separation of ISA and non-ISA but I must admit this one makes me feel uncomfortable in just saying it is just SW and allow the possibility of variations both being RISC-V (profile) compatible.
or am I misunderstanding?
