The isolation hole is not much better than a global 1:1 mapping. If one device is 1:1 mapped to all memory. All of other devices can access part of this device's DMA range. And this device can access all of other devices' DMA range. Only better place than a global 1:1 mapping is all of other devices are isolated from each other.
