I'll be glad to take a swing at your question if OSI ever expresses a
wish to "consider a licence specifically designed for hardware". Until
that day dawns, though, your question seems a bit pointless.

Highlighted assertion is unsupported, and seems dubious on its face:
_Reasons_ OSI might wish to ask that submitted licences be _in actual use_
for software have already been cited.
