A hypothetical scenario is a buggy device that crashes if you probe anything
other than LUN 0. (Though this might be covered by a quirk table. Oh well.)
I have a UMAX scanner (Astra 910S) that causes 1.3.2 to complain loudly for
each LUN after 0, so I usually leave it powered off except when I really need
to use it.

Huh? Wouldn't you have to convince some of your existing devices to share
a SCSI ID, but only respond to different LUN's? I don't think this will
"just work" in the setup that you're describing here.
