What is the best way to use ODL to manage both SDN and non-SDN devices together

I'd like to use ODL as a single application to manage both SDN devices and non-SDN devices.

First of all does this sound like a good idea, secondly is there any documentation/good practice around how to programatically load non-SDN/OF switches into the ODL topology services?

Thanks in advance.

What is the best way to use ODL to manage both SDN discoverable and non-SDN non-discoverable devices together

I'd like to use ODL as a single application to manage both SDN discoverable devices and non-SDN non-discoverable devices.

Note by non-discoverable devices, I mean those that do not proactively advertise their presence and will need to be loaded into ODL via a custom plugin.
