Thanks for pointing this out and sorry for the delay in chiming in.

Blog post and white paper are available here:

https://community.arm.com/developer/ip-products/processors/b/processors-ip-blog/posts/high-performance-device-virtualization-approach-to-standardization

It would be certainly good to reach a degree of convergence in this
design space, which eventually will be beneficial for the kernel
interfaces required.

Thanks again for pointing this out.
