You could build hardware that worked as described. The interface card
could stay inert and not signal anything the the host until a smartmedia
card was inserted. That shuffling smartmedia cards would send regular
PCMCIA events to the host, so they wouldn't need to invent a further level
of events for smartmedia cards.
No idea if that's how they do it or not, just a theory.
