One reason they might care would be which I/O devices are connected
to each node. DMI might be a good way to get an invariant name for the
node, but they might also want to specify in terms of what they actually
want. E.g. "eth0 and eth4 are a redundant bonded pair of NICs - don't
mark both these nodes as removable". Though this is almost certainly not
a job for kernel options, but for some user configuration tool that would
spit out the DMI names.
