I believe the company I was working for at the time did just that,
but [IIRC] it was rejected by the Linux kernel core maintainers:
"It ain't a bug, it's a *FEE-CHURE*!"  (*sigh*)  :-{

One can only hope that preferences change over time, and
that this "feature" will someday be recognized as a bug.
