Yes, it is a good idea and i have tried it earlier. But we also need
to exchange some other data so that our custom driver can identify the
connection properly and invoke the appropriate actions at the
so our elements need to communicate some unique information returned
by the driver. if it is a custom interface, exchanging such kind of
data would be possbile. please correct me if i am wrong. suggest if
there are any other possibilities.

Thanks in advance,
