If that works, a packaged USBSERIAL hack would be an excellent add-on for all kindles (conditional on the trigger file, like how NiLuJe's USBNET works), as a safety precaution for "easy" debricking without opening the kindle.
Oh yeah, that is definitely a very good plan! While I'm being cautious with my edits, there is always some chance of bricking the device by accident. You managed to recover from there, but I would be totally screwed in that case

So +1 from my side, most definitely.
