No, *using* it would be the wrong thing (bad root; no biscuit).

Except when the PF doesn't have SR-IOV capability anyway, in which case
who cares.

Or when the PF does have SR-IOV capability and root has ensure that
she's doing the right thing.

I understand the arguments about disallowing root from doing bad
things. Not that I agree with them. But simply changing to a
*different* driver seems pointless.
