Well, it looks like (and please tell me if I'm wrong) the hwmons are just
string attributes that are parsed by the platform-specific code through
a platform bus type notifier.

We could do that for power domains too, but then each platform wanting to
use them would need to implement such a notifier and add its own routine
for parsing those strings. Would that be acceptable to everyone concerned?
