GENERIC kernconf file suggestion

I was just caught with a kernel that wouldn't compile when I added USB double-bulk pipes (device udbp). A quick google search found that I needed to add "options NETGRAPH" to the kernel file.
No biggie, but I see this has been catching people since 2005 (http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-usb/2005-October/001581.html )
Can we update the GENERIC kernel to be more obvious of this requirement, say:
#device udbp # USB Double Bulk Pipe devices - Requires 'options NETGRAPH'
I'm not sure who I should bring this to the attention to (davidxu?), so I thought I'd start here.
