I would also add couple of things, how about this order:

In PSCI firmware v1.0, the OS-Initiated mode is introduced. However the
flattened vs hierarchical DT representation of power domains is orthogonal
to OS-Initiated vs platform-coordinated PSCI CPU suspend modes and
should be considered independent of each other.

The hierarchical representation helps and makes it easy to implement
OSI mode and OS implementations may choose to mandate it.

For the default platform-coordinated mode, both representations are
viable options.
