What about virtual machines? At present once a block is allocated on a dynamic disk the host has no way to know that it can later be discarded, even if almost every file in the guest is deleted. Isn't this exactly the same problem? Changing the software that emulates an ATA device could probably happen more quickly than hardware changes.
