Default Poulsbo support in Ubuntu Mobile?

Obviously Ubuntu-MID will have support for Poulsbo/SCH but what about the bigger devices using Silverthorne/Poulsbo. Ubuntu-MID doesnt really, er, 'fit'!
KJS have a couple of big screen devices. Viliv are working on two. Wibrain and even Dell who will have a 12" netbook using Silverthorne Poulsbo.

Windows XP works of course but SCH drivers are primitive. Video codec support is a nightmare as is finger fiendlyness on the touch devices.
Vista is simply too much for most of these devices. Ubuntu-Mobile fits in well and could generate some serious dev. interest.

How difficult would it be to build in the Poulsbo drivers from Ubuntu-MID at an early stage so I can present it to the UMPC/Netbook community as something they SHOULD be getting involved in?
