I want to ask if it would be possible to give a parameter at the driver
in the _init call in order to tell the driver "not to read it's normal
but to read a specific [alternate-section].

Now the reason for this is that,
whenever multiple instance will be supported in some driver,
and when someone will try to make the SuperDriver,
then we will need to start multiple copies of the same driver
with different parameter (maybe).

I don't have the solution, but I know something is needed.
