There are some special cases where generic pointer are not needed at all.
For ex. cc2430 has all data areas mapped to sections of xdata. So everything can be accessed with xdata pointer.
But indeed, this is very processor specific.

I made a quick patch to the sdcc adding an option to make unqulified pointers xdata.
