On the other side, we already did a mistake and pushed API when its
implementation was not ready yet and given that the API doesn't seem to
need any changes (except for the tiny one in 1/18), there's no strong
reason to revert it (except of for it being unsupported by all drivers).

It would be nice to at least have the remote driver implementation in
place but it's probably too late for that too.
