    No, because it violates the standard. Just as we can define a major
    number to have a specific meaning, we can define a name in the devfs
    namespace to have a specific meaning.

    Yes, it's broken if someone writes a cabbage dicer driver and uses
    "cd" as the leaf node name for devfs.

    Yes, it's broken if someone writes a cabbage dicer driver and uses
    the same major as the IDE CD-ROM or SCSI CD-ROM drivers.
