This is trivial to implement and might be a good first step, but it's
absolutely horrible from a usability perspective;

The user would need to keep track of and understand no less than two
tools, AND an intermediary layout file, in order to perform the
single task of partial firmware update.

I think it is quite neccessary for flashrom to understand CBFS (and
LAR, for v3 users).
