Thanks for the link, I wasn't aware of ePAPR.

The hypervisor node defined by ePAPR is not very different from what I
am proposing. Should I try to be compatible with the hypervisor
specification above (as in compatible = "epapr,hypervisor-1.1")?
Or should I just use it as a reference for my own specification?

Personally I would rather avoid full compatibility with ePAPR.
