Yay!

I'd worry about the standard connectors first, but probably good to have
an idea of how vendor connectors need to be extended.

We did "type" for hdmi-connector, but I think I'd really prefer
compatible be used to distinguish as least where it may matter to s/w.
In the HDMI case, they all are pretty much the same, just different
physical size.

child of the controller is also an option. There's already prec

Do we really see cases where the connector is slower than the
controller? Plus things like "ls" with an type A connector are not
valid.

What does powered mean?

This is really "type" if you compare to HDMI.

These all are implied by "samsung,usb-connector-11pin".

I think this should be 2 ports, not 2 endpoints. Think of ports as
different data streams and endpoints are either the same data stream
muxed or fanned out depending on direction. Now for Type-C, 1 port for
USB and alternate modes is probably correct.
