Yes *but* this does not specify whether each interfaces would have its own 
instance of SD and ML. It would be simpler, but in some cases it wouldn't work 
at all. In fact, the ML is a single database. And, say an MTP device can 
probably only be used by one entity at a time... So I suspect you still need 
to manage SD and ML models in the core.

Yes but first the new SD and ML back-ends must be implemented.
