I thought about this too but didn't do it mainly because of those reasons:

a) As you already mentioned the current code in common is 4xx specific.

b) The parameters used to identify the image type are incompatible on
   both platforms. "1" is used for booting a script on 4xx and VxWorks
   on CPCI750.

c) I have no means of testing any changes in this code on 4xx and/or

So if you still think this should be unified then I need your assistance here. 
You would need to help me testing those changes on both platforms. Please let 
me know if you can do this.
