Does anyone in NetBSD world do this?

I have deployed an amd(8) based scheme like yours, and as long as procedures are followed properly, it works. Still, while you can do things like that with amd(8), it's a fragile construction, and an accidental eject(1) can break things until the next reboot.

Apart from amd's weakness with removable storage devices - are you sure the freezes you see are not actually USB problems?

HAL is supposed to provide a connection between the kernel's knowledge of plug-{in,out} events and interested parties in userland, like a desktop manager. Apparently, NetBSD is finally catching up there.
