builtin module aliases in 2.6.0-test11 - non-working MODULE_ALIAS_BLOCKDEV_MAJOR?

As I see after upgrade to test11 MODULE_ALIAS_CHARDEV_MAJOR has just
begun to work without modprobe.conf entries - but
At least for floppy module - there is:
and it means:
$ /sbin/modinfo -F alias floppy

But accessing /dev/fd0 still causes modprobe block-major-2, which fails
without block-major-2 alias in /etc/modprobe.conf...

BTW, maybe it would be good to build in some modules more aliases which
seem constant?
I mean (from my modprobe.conf):

alias ppp-compress-21 bsd_comp
alias ppp-compress-24 ppp_deflate
alias ppp-compress-26 ppp_deflate
alias iso9660 isofs
alias block-major-11 sr_mod
alias char-major-21 sg
