Hmm, in that case I don't understand your distinction between frontend and backend.

In the case of networking, they don't have to be distinct because all you need to do is have two "front-ends" and flip the TX/RX queues. Although even in this case, someone has to own the MAC address so it's not purely symmetric.

In the general case, that isn't always true for devices. Consider block devices, for instance.
