How so? More below...

This is un-muxed unlike Type-C where the signals are muxed with USB SS.
That makes me think the Samsung connector should have its own compatible
string.

Can we go ahead and define the video modes of Type-C? Normally, if 2
data streams are mutually exclusive, then they are a single port with 2
endpoints. So we'd either have 2 endpoints on port 1 or we stick with
port 3 is always video. We can still know what is mutually exclusive
based on the compatible.
