would be nice to directly read/write the NAND through DFU-Util. Priority is low because there are other methods (use/flash SD). And, the OpenMoko DFU-Util extensions have not yet made their way into mainline U-Boot.

This feature was rarely missing. Mainly if debugging kernels without working USB interface. Unless booting and kenrel-USB on the device works a whole system upgrade can be installed through ssh over USB.
