Right. In fact, if the model cannot be baselined (due to only a single
CPU provided to the API), and we DON'T call expansion here, the result
will just be the same verbatim XML that the user provided... which may
or may not be correct...

Calling expansion on the model will guarantee a sane response.

Precisely. A static expansion will return the CPU model and a
non-exhaustive list of features associated with the model.

Sounds good. I'll replace patch #1 with something that simply checks for
a missing model name within baseline and prints a helpful error, and
make the appropriate changes to this one.
