Fdti provides both mac and windows drivers for their interfaces that
emulate serial. You can even customize them if needed. It would show
up to NCU as a COM port.

As for 802.11 and Bluetooth, you make a valid point. Though I still
think getting rid of the propreitary cable in favor of a standard usb
port could be useful for recovery situations....

Dunno, possibly not worth the effort.
