Oh, I see.

I think if we do that, we'll need to reword the basic vs. advanced
screen.  We might also need to redefine what's advanced and what's
basic, too.  A system could certainly have a ton of basic devices - in
fact, s390 does since its devices show up as "basic".  And we definitely
want those systems to be able to pass through the filter UI.  s390 was
one of the primary cases for coming up with all this stuff in the first
place.

So I think what we'd have to do is make it clear to the user that
they're choosing whether they want to filter out their storage devices
or not, and then do the skip.

If you want to open a bug for this, I'll take a look hopefully next
week.
