I don't think there's any fundamental reason we can't. Currently, it
just isn't doing anything it doesn't have to do while preserving the
existing ordering. One different from networking could be that
there's more sharing - buffered writes are attributed to the whole
domain (either system or cgroup) rather than individual tasks, so the
ownership of IOs gets a bit mushy beyond resource domain level.
