I think there is a pathological case that can be avoided with a
statement like the following:

"Note that ops are intended as a way to augment instance behavior
within a class of auxiliary devices, it is not the mechanism for
exporting common infrastructure from the parent. Consider
EXPORT_SYMBOL_NS() to convey infrastructure from the parent module to
the auxiliary module(s)."

As for your other dispositions of the feedback, looks good to me.
