I hope to see more of such devices in near future.

The glue code that you are talking about is for the same virtual MFD
component that you proposed initially, right? I mean the glue code in
CODEC will help it to get attached to the MFD. In this case, in addition
to the glue code inside CODEC we will also need additional MFD
component. Or I am completely misinterpreting you here?
