[PVE-User] question regarding colum in disks view / passtrough disk

in Datacenter->Nodename->Disks  there is a column "Usage" which shows
what filesystem is being used for the disk.

I have 2 System disks (ssd) which contain the proxmox system and they
are being used as ZFS mirror, i.e. i can put virtual machines on rpool/data

The other harddisks (ordinary large sata disks) are being used as
passtrough devices, i.e. have added them with command like

qm set 100 -scsi5 /dev/disk/by-id/ata-HGST_HUH721212ALE600_AAGVE62H

as raw disks to virtual machines, i.e. they are used from a single
virtual machine.

 From the Disk View in Webgui, you cannot differ between thos, i.e. they
simply look "the same" from a hosts management perspective.

Wouldn't it make sense to make a difference in the Webgui when a disk
containing filesystem/data which is (and should) not being accessed on
the host/hypervisor level ?

I would feel much better if proxmox knew some "the host OS should not
touch this disk at all" flag and if it would have an understanding of
"this is a disk i (can) use" and "this is a disk i can't/should not use"
