My opinion exaclty.

For what it's worth, the way I do it is manually control mounting of
devices by having fstab entries for all possible devices, and by
creating all the possible mount points, like:

for device in sd{a,b,c,d,e}{1..6}; do
    echo "/dev/$device /media/$device auto noauto,noatime,user 0 0" >> 
    mkdir /media/$device

..and in ranger I go to /media and do a @mount on whatever device I
want to mount.  To reduce clutter in /media, one could use a ranger
plugin that hides irrelevant mount points (see attachment).
