That would certainly be possible, and would be an alternative to
having multi-bindable subsystem support.

The advantage of adding multi-bindable subsystems is that you can
avoid bloating the core cgroups code, by putting individual small
cgroups features in their own code modules, and you get to decide at
mount time which features are actually mounted; if they were part of
the core cgroups files, then there would either need to be special
mount options for each separate feature, or else no way to pick which
features were mounted on each hierarchy.
