Perhaps I should write "dial-up" and other non-fixed connections.

It's complex, I think kernel interface to generic HDLC would mean more
code than PPP implementation required for fixed lines.
Additional requirement - userspace daemon with additional plugin - may
not be the best thing for fixed lines either.

That would break backward compatibility, too.

Personally I think it could be acceptable but it's not for me to
decide.
