How exactly do you think we will do that as uploads? It's not obvious that
a change of platform will instantly make us totally malleable or give us
the ability easily to simply plug in new abilities. I'm not saying it can't
happen, but I do think this assumption is usually made without argument.

I'd be interested in how you would support these claims.
