For this case yes, but I later expand on this structure for all
fallback configuration items. So we have to start it somewhere.

Please read the final results and let me know what you think.

I don't use them for sport, I use them given the fallback stuff *is*
not something the direct core firmware code should use openly, it will
really depend on if the fallback interface was enabled. As such we
provide wrapper for access into them.
