    NFSv3 only really cares about the contents of that arbitary device identity
    in order to ensure a mknod on the server or client create the same device
    viewed on both. That didnt used to be true in NFSv2 and could be a real
    nightmare with managing NFS boxes before v3.

    The rest of the argument is valid even with NFS - and we do effectively
    subdivide further.
