I welcome notes support. Thanks for adding it.

How will we control and manage the notes we support?

Should we document the top level notes domains (?) with some we control and
restrict and others users can use? For example `note.rtems.test`,
`note.rtems.kernel`, `note.rtems.bsp`, and `note.rtems.user`?

Do you have any host side tools in mind to access notes apart from the standards
like readefl? Maybe the rtems-exe-info tool could do this?
