I am a bit lost on the directions:
a) is this introducing a new API that will eventually replace the 
existing one?
b) or are we going to have two options, managed and non-managed buffers?
in this case, what would drive an implementer to keep using non-managed 
buffers? It'd be useful to provide examples.

In the cover letter, the wording 'almost all drivers' is used, which 
leads be to think option b) it is, but the exceptions are not clear to me.
