No. The point is to make the driver work "right now". It's something that you can already do with XFree96/X.org (using the DeviceID option IIRC), and with some kernel drivers (mainly storage ones).
Having the driver work straight away means that you can test it without recompiling a kernel. Then you should drop a mail for the ID to be added properly. It's just a work-around.
