Err, of course not negation, just mostly mirrors it (translating
"absent" into "0").

More interestingly, the corresponding sys-devices-...-block-sr0.device
is still active (plugged). It is tagged "systemd" properly, so it
ought to catch this code path in device_dispatch_io():

       if (streq(action, "remove") || !device_is_ready(dev))  {
                r = device_process_removed_device(m, dev);

I ran systemd with log_level=debug, but core/device.c doesn't have any
debug logging, so that won't help. "journalctl /dev/sr0" doesn't have
anything. So I'll dig into why ENV{SYSTEMD_READY}="0" doesn't stop the
