Yes, that's true, but here it looks more like there's no point of
having one without the other.

Pretty much like interrupt-parent and interrupt. A single one doesn't
really make much sense without the other.

And I don't think saying that you would need some additional
properties when in device mode rather than in host mode is really
documenting a behaviour. It does change things at a hardware level

We can always figure it out in due time.
