We should definitely talk -- I wouldn't want one of us to duplicate work
that the other is doing, nor would I want one of us to think "I'll just wait
until he does it", and later find out that he never got around to it.  But,
I'm glad to hear your thinking along the same lines.

Yup, no worries.

Hmmm, one small worry -- I'm not actually using Intel flash, I'm using the
Micro equivalent, which may, or may not, report the Intel ID code.  I've
never worried about it since I've been using my CFI support.  Well, the
worst that will happen is that it won't be recognized at boot.
