Why it is transparent? If one of the underlying device doesn't support/claim
this feature, application can't use this feature with failsafe, isn't it?

Hi Andrew,

Yes policy is other-way around indeed, when there is no comment at all default
behavior is accept, but please take above paragraph as my comment to the patch.

And I was thinking it is a little controversial and there is no support to have
it, so lets don't get it. What do you think?
