The problem with keeping such tables in kernel is that they contain too much
magic values which very few people understand. And after some amount of time,
even they don't remember any of it.

What I was expecting was to remove as much of these tables as possible and do
the calculations to get them at runtime with some logical code which people can
understand later on.

That and somehow add code to get those tables if possible.
