OpenCL ICD to ship with driver instead of Stream SDK?

just a short question, are there plans to ship the AMD OpenCL ICD with the regular Cataylst drivers any time soon, like NVIDIA does?

I'm aware the AMD OpenCL ICD also offers a CPU implementation in addition to the GPU implementation, so installing the Catalyst driver should probably not be the only way to get the OpenCL driver (e.g. for people with an NVIDIA GPU that would like to use AMD's OpenCL CPU ICD), but still it would be convenient for AMD GPU users.

Thanks for any insights.


EDIT: Maybe it would make sense to split the AMD ICD into a GPU part and a CPU part, and ship the GPU driver with the Catalyst driver, and make the CPU driver available as a separate download?
