Someone suggested this before.  There are most likely non technical
people who read this list and the term "binary diver" is not 100%
correct in the context of this discussion.  All drivers end up being
binary in the distribution.  Proprietary driver might be a better term
and would help educate more people, which is, from reading this thread,
a part of what you are trying to accomplish.  Just a though.
