Well, the data_role does not limit the requests from reaching the low
level drivers, but..

.. yes. The power_role_store() does indeed need to be refactored. The
PD requirement should only be applied to Type-C spec versions < 1.2,
or removed completely. I would be happy to leave the checks to the low
level drivers.
