Yes, but I don't think it's possible to do it in a nice way.
Any adjustment we make to the block layer to fit the SCSI subsystem's
desires would make all other block drivers uglier, so I chose to confine
the ugliness here.

The root issue is that the SCSI subsystem is unique in how it sits on
top of the block layer; this is the famous "adapter" (or "midlayer",
though that is confusing when talking about SCSI) design that Linux
usually tries to avoid.
