Default AVOption vs FireWire video

I read somewhere here that the AVOption is super smart ( and I don't doubt that it isn't ) because the ABVB board accesses the SCSI accelerator directly. This leaves the rest of the PCI bus free for Pro Tools. Does this happen only in a 9600 and the PT / AV boards on different bridges? Can it also happen in a 3-slotter with an expansion chassis with PT / AV boards on different bridges? Where else?

Is is also possible then, for FireWire to have the same advantage by using a FireWire drive to store the information?? ie: Quicktime instructs the data to come off the FireWire drive and go directly to the FireWire video device, thus not using up main PCI/RAM bus bandwidth??
