I agree, there's no point in listing things that can be done
automatically - it's just introducing potential for error.

Yes, that was where I was heading too. Have a mechanism for matching up
hotplugged devices with pre-registered ones which appear from firmware
or wherever if their IDs match. It'd need some mechanism for drivers to
opt into being bound to devices that aren't physically there I think so
that normal drivers for enumerated devices don't get confused.
