Absolutely not. :)

We already have performance-differentiated memory, and lots of ways to
enumerate and select it in the kernel (all of our NUMA infrastructure).

PMEM is also just the first of many "kinds" of memory that folks want to
build in systems and use a "RAM". We literally don't have space to put
a flag in for each type.
