An example is a NIC with nvram that stores a mac address.  In QOM, the guest

One of the many paths is still "<unique-nic-name>/nvram", so nothing

Auto-generated names are not needed, just use paths. In the end a device
name is a path as well, one with only a single element.

The auto-generated name right now would be:


You are right that that is also a path. And I now think you are right that we could just s|::|/|g and declare that names are paths.

The only problem with this is it introduces a canonical path format. That may or may not be a bad thing..
