Mach Drivers

This is not meant as a flame - I'm just curious.  I thought that since
Mach was a Microkernel, the device drivers would be implemented as
external processes, like HURD's other drivers.  However, it seems that
they are compiled in.  

1) Is it possible to write low-level hardware drivers that load _after_

2) If not, is it possible for Mach to have loadable driver support?

3) How are these issues affected if the HURD goes to L4?
