"He is doing what Microsoft should've done with Windows years ago and prevent hack jobs from entering in to the code, which are then built upon in later updates, which then can't be removed without massive re-writes to all of the code that relies on it."

Windows is already fully modular including most kernel side code, unlike Linux which largely isn't. So you can easily replace code modules in Windows by simply retaining the same API interfaces. This is one of the advantages of Windows more modern hybrid microkernel design...
