To be useful for me, 2 things would have to change:

- Remove the word "DOS" from the name (the thing is unable to boot
into a PC, so it's not a OS and thus not a DOS)

- Remove the "DOS-like interface that maps the native file system"
(so turn it into a clean 80386 / 80486 / early Pentium PC emulator)
