Sure, I can make it slip revs that the elevator can not correct.
Hop platters, if we know where they begin/end.

I can do write_verify_read that can never be done in a filesystem.
Pick any sector, write to it, and read it back and verify that the in and
out of that sector is identical.

More than that it could be expanded to recover bad block of data once it
is understood how to do that in more detail.

All the raid devices that report smaller capacity than max to protect the
signature can be recovered now. Thus reading beyond reported geometry.
Junk like this will be more useful.
