There are a huge number of VESA Localbus cards that identify as
EISA cards, including having all the EISA device identifier stuff
in tehir ROMs.  The disk controllers are the worst, but I have
seen at least two video boards that do the same thing.

Though I'd like to deprecate VESA Localbus as an abomination, I
guess it has to be supported.

Maybe it would be possible to have a separate "VLBus" bus that
went in before the EISA bus?
