Indeed, we have discussed this as a property of the scheduler in kubernetes.

- Nodes are given attributes (i.e. THP=never)
- Users declare their requirements (i.e. THP=never)
- User submits job, scheduler does matching to node
- Node executes job

This allows for shared control plane, serving disparate workloads on hybrid

​THP=never is just another node attribute, as could be things like
- Does a DPDK-capable NIC or GPU or FPGA exist, and is unused
- What kernel version is it running
- Is the node tuned correctly

...myriad other possibilities, in a rapidly evolving space.
