If the goal is to align with DT, it would be appropriate to point to
where those properties are defined for DT rather than to have a separate
description here. I suggest something along the lines of:

The "phy-mode" _DSD property is used to describe the connection to
the PHY. The valid values for "phy-mode" are defined in
Documentation/devicetree/bindings/ethernet-controller.yaml

Can you elaborate? "phy-handle" has a section to itself in this
document. Agree that it needs to be defined more, but it does read to me
as having been defined.
