This sounds like an excellent plan.  We can even use the new
(in SDM2.2 p. 2:345) PAL_BRAND_INFO call to get the right
(Intel marketting/legal approved) string.  For older systems
that don't implement PAL_BRAND_INFO we could have some fallback
code that decodes family/model to Merced/McKinley/Madison.
