I don't agree.  There still would be too much overlap.  What differences 
do you really see between your educationalist and your functionalist 
approaches?  I see the following possibilities:

1.  udev/hotplug
2.  boot scripts

1 actually influences 2 quite a bit. 

The only real issue as I see it is to decide what goes in LFS and what 
goes in BLFS.
