Handling boot-critical Win 7 drivers in ZCM imaging

Does anyone know how to handle boot-critical drivers with ZCM imaging?
These are typically disk controller and/or NIC drivers.

MS WIM seems to require that you mount the image and "reflect" the
driver into the image. (Gotta love MS's way with words.)

I was wondering if this could be done in one of the Sysprep phases?
Use and add-on image to deliver the boot-critical driver to, say,
C:\Drivers then install it during the phase.

I tried the Windows-PnpCustomizationsNonWinPE entry in the
offlineServicing phase. Doesn't work.

Maybe the Windows-PnpCustomizationsNonWinPE or
Windows-PnpCustomizationsWinPE entry in the windowsPE phase?

I'm trying to avoid having to open the image and add critical drivers
that way.

BTW, I've gotten other drivers to install easily in a Powershell
script with DPINST. Works like a champ and allows me to deliver just
the drivers I need as an add-on image.

All suggestions/discussion welcome.
