In this case mine is really tested on a device if that really matters
in this case;-)
I don't think there can be any problems with this simple approach.

Regarding "not all devices" I meant that that eeprom.sh when added to
global base-files, will be useless for many platforms.
I added DIR-825B1 to ath79 and it needed some hacks to get eeprom and
mac, there is no way to upstream this type of methods. But it is an
old device.

But without these patches many devices have disabled wireless on first
boot after flashing, because caldata is not ready in time. Fixing this
annoying behavior is important.
