I find it useful when doing this:

 find /sys/class/iscsi_session/session*/device/ -name block:* | sed 's/.*:/'

And I can get all of the block disks names without have to read the link(s).

Not sure what you mean. This sysfs structure has been in existence for some 
time (since 2.0-754)
so code written to use this format is not broken.

I would think that code that uses the block device would be using the
/sys/block/sdX interface instead?
