Apologies for the delayed reply. Was on vacation.

Mostly because this is only one of several drivers. One that the
other drivers depend on, and I don't see those posted at all. I'm
guessing we'll want changes that will cause those unposted drivers to
break. It just seems to make sense to work on the API in staging
rather than slam it into drivers/misc/.
