I don't quite follow. Can't you always manually assign node-names? This
is how libvirt is supposed to use the interface.

I'm not totally sure whether automatically generated node-names are
a good idea, but I can see how they are useful with human monitor users
which may not specify a node-name everywhere (I've used device_add
without an ID often enough, only to find that I can't remove the device
any more). We should just make sure that they are really only used by
human users.
