What about using name "Disk::propose" for creating such disk?

Definitely not "propose". We are using that term in a completely different meaning since more than ten years.

But I agree we will need a mechanism to make clear that a (usually) physical device like a disk is created by

- hardware probing
- creating virtual devices (Kiwi etc.)
- creating pseudo devices for testing (i.e., mocking)

I am in the process of collecting and writing down my ideas and thoughts for that. Stay tuned.
