Default hardware-support comps group

Hi, (and happy new year)

Would it make sense to create a comps group for packages that need to be
updated regularly for fedora to have good hardware support? (kernel,
sane, xorg drivers, printer drivers, dcraw, etc) And then check
regularly (via a script or human auditing) none of the bits in this
group are stale?

Or is it something best left to the maintainers of each of those
packages?

Not sure why this would be in comps, as it's not something that should
ever be exposed in that way. Out-of-band seems simpler.
