KS2008: Filesystem and block layer interaction

Has anyone considered that mkfs could, well, *probe* the block device? Do some basic block i/o and profile the responses, then use that data to optimize filesystem layout. Ideally you'd be able to re-do this probe at any later time - like doing a fsck - if the admin knows that the storage topology changed.

Seems too quick simple and well thought out to work right.
