I don't want to diminish your work in any way, but what is the point of 
the ubiblock feature? Mtd block devices are really only used in order to 
give the mount/umount commands a block device, and for ubifs the device is 
specified in another way. So I suspect the intended usage for ubiblock is 
something else.
