Yes, this is unfortunately a good idea. I'll slightly amend the idea
-- how about only printing that warning if the ibcm cpc was explicitly
requested? Specifically, pseudocode can be like this:

   if (device_does_not_exist) {
      if (ibcm_was_specifically_requested) {
      return NULL;

Pasha -- do you want to open a ticket?
