How would that be basically different from what most Linux distributors
do these days?


Essentially the main difference would be providing a distribution

But that's such a marginal detail which apparently is negligible for the
vast amount of applications to config.guess. If you really need it, you
can still obtain it in other ways (grep'ing /etc/*-release).
