yep. I did check the behavior after we talked. 'unusedX' will not end up in a 
snapshot and if we detach a disk from a running VM with disk hotplugging 
disabled, it will become a pending change in the form:
delete: scsi4

So we should also not expect 'unusedX' there. Therefore I think we can drop this
