It is not clear what "a property" means in this context.

This should refer to the documents introducing the _DSD-based generic
device properties rules, including the GUID used below.

You need to say whether or not the property is mandatory and if it
isn't mandatory, you need to say what the lack of it means.

This needs to be more detailed too, IMO. At the very least, please
list all of the possible values of it and document their meaning.

What is "phy-handle"?

You haven't introduced it above.

What is this device, exactly?

What is the connection between the last two pieces of ASL and the _DSD
definitions above?
