As before this is still extremely vague. Stating that each component is
a IEEE-754 half-precision float (binary16) should cover it. Well, assuming
that it really is one.

Missing one 16 from that name to be consistent with the non-float stuff.

Also maybe it should be (... '4', 'F')? '3' would seem to imply a 48 bit
pixel.

And of course it's still missing the actual implemntation for any driver.
