For a lot of reasons netlink is a very good fit for the working with the networking stack. But note the networking stack has /proc/sys/net also.

Netlink isn't too bad for general event based things.

Beyond that I would not encourage use of netlink.

I'm not certain what to do with bad blocks. They seem like part of an abstraction leaking through so I'm not certain we want an interface that we have to maintain for all time describing them for dealing with them.
