Ok, this all makes consistent sense to me too. So:

- the CSI hardware cropping rectangle should be specified via the
sink pad crop selection.

- the CSI hardware /2 downscaler should be specified via the
sink pad compose selection.

- the final source pad rectangle is the same as the sink pad
compose rectangle.

So that leaves only step 4 (source pad crop selection) as
