I'm afraid that OF has no clear concept of this either. It's usually
used as a unique ID for the children of some device (like MFD) and can
represent a lot of things. But I agree it should be documented.

Rob, any ideas about this?

We may actually get mapping to all three if first we check for the
method/name existence followed by value check.
But I don't think we need to bloat this simple one.
