Just don't do it.  It makes the driver behave differently from others
for no good reason.  Driver being loaded or not doesn't indicate
anything anymore other than the code is loaded and you're adding
complexity to just make it more confusing and you don't have good
enough technical reasons to justify the deviation.  What are you even
fighting for?
