it's not mandatory, so you're not obliged to do so, but it makes me wonder if
it would be possible to generate factory image which could be flashed with the
same recovery mechanism, thus avoiding the -F in the sysupgrade above
(considered dangerous).

Please can you consider adding `SPDX-License-Identifier: GPL-2.0-or-later OR
MIT` ?

Otherwise LGTM.
