What's official? =) I suspect that drivers will never all be copyrighted
to the FSF, since there's almost no value in that, which means that they
should never wind up in the Hurd repository.  On the other hand, having
a sub project that deals with drivers and driver infrastracture would be
very worthwhile.

I would encourage you to work on it, and setup mailing lists and a
documentation repository for those interested in working on it.  Having
a nice texinfo doc would be really useful for interested newcomers.
