I'd vote for rejecting images that have auto-resize set when the MTD is 
In fact, using UBI on top of a read-only MTD is very uncommon and not 
recommended (for NAND).
The auto-resize flag should be also only set when you just have created it 
using mkfs.ubifs.
Why would you inspect such an image with the kernel UBIFS unless you're hunting 
down a bug
in mkfs.ubifs?
