Not sure what you mean by that, but that's not true.

We can still have 2 different protocols using same MHU channel with
different doorbells, what's wrong with that ?

Example please ? Please remember these protocols are generic and we
can't add any platform specific code into them.

Why ? Clearly you have not made a since technical argument so far as why
MHU doorbell is not correct way even when MHU specification is clearly
allows it. I have given example of ST mailbox which has this doorbell
kind of support.

Care to elaborate on what's my confusion or at-least what you think so ?

Also if you have concern on implementation, ok we can discuss further.
But can you make it clear as what your objections are for the doorbell
MHU binding. How will I get the bit assigned for different protocols
which are platform specific ? I still need some binding , right ?
