Good article, datapath and compiled layout makes a lot of sense. In fact an entire company was formed around this very concept called Silicon Compilers in the 1980s, then acquired by Mentor in the early 1990s. There were two compiler tools: Genesil and GDT. Earlier while at Intel I wrote my own layout compilers to produce parts of a Graphics Chip automatically.
