Thanks for the info.

I wonder if the solution is to use a phrase other than "Internal" that
actually indicates what this field is used for. You mentioned "the
Internal flag is only used to relax authentication checks on removable
devices" but I'm not clear on what exactly this means. Does it mean
that "Internal: True" devices need root/sudo access to update and
"Internal: False" any be updated by any locally present user?
