if you import a device from another machine, you drive that (remote) device, not a local one. you are importing access to a device, not loading a device driver. the control messages and data flow through the mount point on the local machine to the device driver on the remote machine to drive the remote device. if you'd like a cpu server (say) to access a device on your machine, you have the server import your machine's device into its name space. X11-style network graphics, for instance, in a Inferno or Plan 9 environment isn't a specialised operation: a cpu server imports a terminal's graphics devices into its name space; that's it.
