I don't think we want to do it in all cases.

So, on my cellphone seeing lp5523:green:led is indeed not useful.

But on notebook with usb keyboard attached, you need to keep the
devicename to be able to distinguish capslock on internal keyboard and
capslock on first USB keyboard and capslock on second USB keyboard.

Taking look at the list of functions, here's stuff like "hdd" and
"hdderr". I assume the first means hdd activity... If we can do it, it
would be nicest to have "sda:green:activity" and maybe
"sda:red:error". For a raid array with 8 drives...

For example I have a router running linux. It has 4 lan ports, with
correspondings LED, and an wan led.

Having "green:lan1" to "green:lan4" and "green:wan" plus
"red:wanerror" would work, but I'd really preffer
"eth0:green:link"... "adsl0:green:link", "adsl0:red:error".

There are now phones with flashes on both main and selfie
cameras. Again, knowing which device is which is important. As is
knowing which display is controlled by particular backlight.

Best regards,
Pavel
