I'd certainly not want to wait for it for this particular issue;
however, I think there is value in having this (seeing that at least
Open Stack and s390x DPM already make use of such a mechanism.) But we
can still revisit this later on.

(I'm not too sold on branching out to other device types in general,
but there seems to be demand for it.)
