You could, but it would have to only do the check_region() if it's not
been supplied with the port (same as the reserve=0x300,0x20
ether=0x300,5,eth0 situation, "operator know's what he/she/it's doing").
Wether it is posable to do the checks, but wouldn't:

if(io=<defaultvalue>) {
check_region(...
...
} else {
...
}

be ok ?
