I think you are somewhat on the same page as  David Zeuthen with
regard to what direction should be taken to make hotpluggable devices
more integrated in the desktop.  Whether or not the new system prompts
for interaction by default or just notifies is a UI detail that could
be argued about later... number 4 on David's list. The real trick  is
bulding up the per-device configuration for each user and teaching the
desktop ui how to access those per device properties.  I think David
did a good job prioritizing the technical issues in his list.
