Sorry, I missed this series until you pointed to it on irc just now :-)

I have discussed this topic before with Sakari and Laurent. My main problem
with this is how an application can discover that not everything is online?
And which parts are offline?

Perhaps a car with 10 cameras can function with 9, but not with 8. How would
userspace know?

I completely agree that we need to support these advanced scenarios (including
what happens when a camera suddenly fails), but it is the userspace aspects
for which I would like to see an RFC first before you can do these things.
