I think that having a way of doing this for Both OS and Hardware would 
be very useful.  A bug logged against a product running on the Pentium3 
may effect all the versions on x86-class machines or be very specific to 
the P3.  I certainly have analogous issues.  I would vote for doing this 
for Both OS and Hardware.
