devices.txt is the spec.

Doesn't matter - changing them will cause regressions.

If people want to rename them in userspace then fine, but changing the
default names for device nodes is not something to do lightly. You'll
break stuff for people who do follow the spec.

So NAK, and that's with the devices@lanana.org keeper of the device name
