on the policy side one could argue that if the clock needs to be enabled to 
achieve sucessful domain state-changes, that it is also a property of the 
domain itself in addition to the device.

And on the pratical side we don't have drivers nor bindings for a big part of 
the domain users - and this will probably be true for quite some time. This of 
course makes it very impractical (or impossible) to collect the clocks for 
parts like the gpu (mali), hevc, vcodec (video encoder/decoder), rga (2d 
stuff), iep, isp.
