    Already done. See Richard Gooch's work on 'devfs', which adopted a naming
    scheme much like you're suggesting, but with quite a bit of user feedback,
    and quite a bit more flexibility that the nearest competition (Solaris).

    Many of us are happily using this system in the real world, mainly because
    of it's other benefits (autoconfiguration of /dev, elimination of major
    and minor numbers, etc). Quite nice.
