Perhaps I wasn't clear. What I was trying to say is that we can do "one thing at
a time" if we choose to create a "combo device" (the way you proposed). I am not
trying to force you to solve all the problems in one go :)

So I tried to write it down and realized I was assuming that different
cooling-maps can be provided for different cooling strategies
(cpufreq/cpuidle) and obviously that's not the case as its per device.
Not sure if it would be correct to explore the possibility of doing
that.
