It possible can be with alot of code and also the performance is bad. It is like the difference between having a GPU in your PC, and not.
Once the stuff is moved into the firmware:
1. It works much better and faster.
2. Devs can just take advantage of it without writting low level code. They can focus on the features rather than the plumbing.
