Well, roughly. But it's really hard to simplify it like this. The
original list has a lot of if's for a reason -- it really depends a lot
on the setup I choose, and thus what workarounds I can apply...

If by "pure" Hurd environment you mean having no Linux boxes at all (not
even the router) running in parallel, there are a few more showstoppers.

Most of them. Dual-booting is really too much pain for all but very
sporadic use cases.
