if you have an improved-for-your-systems governor then I'm sure that is
very welcome in the kernel.

I agree that perfect is the enemy of good.

I think just about all of us agree that the final decision needs to be
in the driver (possibly followed by something that gets various device
requests and combines it into hw settings); we're just talking about
what inputs feed into that decision ;)

And for different types of devices that's guaranteed to be different...
and sometimes we'll be hampered by existing interfaces, so we might end
up with hacky stuff.
