It's standard procedure apparently, see Linus/Mark/Takashi's emails.

no, we shouldn't select things, especially with the Baytrail legacy 
which is kept to avoid breaking existing setups but shouldn't be used 
any longer.
And with SOF coming, we may have hybrid configurations with SOF used on 
Baytrail/Cherrytrail/APL/CNL but SST used on Skylake/Kabylake due to 
firmware authentication stuff.

COMMON is only there to go compile the sound/soc/intel/common directory. 
That's not very useful indeed but otherwise the Makefile doesn't compile 
the match tables or the sst-ipc stuff. If you find a better solution I 
am all ears.

we still have platforms which don't depend on ACPI, so we shouldn't take 
this out.
