Exactly :-) It could monitor all other sorts of things as well, if
necessary (trading reliability through simplicity for functionality),
and it could also be gated.

And the best things is of course that, whatever fancy policy user
space needs to implement, not a single line in the kernel has to
change and we avoid all the deployment issues with making kernel
changes :-)
