This prevents people getting access to the storage device if they want.
It also means you need to change kernel not simply a user space file to
add support for different new identifiers.

So it seems a large step backwards to me.

Why not just teach udev the new switch command then it'll work as a udev
update on all sorts of existing kernels as well as being the kind of
small safe change you can get into the entprise distributions ?
