Why? You can add devfsd which will create some compatibility trough
symlinks. Of course, it won't help if you do some magic with
entries from /proc/partions and /dev/mdstat (what can happen in the
installation progams), but it can be fixed.

You may be infinitely smaller than some things, but you're infinitely 
larger than others.
