We possibly should, yeah. Not 100% sure what the best way to go is here.
If we miss an update or things change unexpectedly somewhere, we might
still see a stale value.

I'm wondering if we should make it a status call and just re-read it
from registers every time? (or at least the target backend can decide
whether it wants to cache and update or just re-read, etc)
