should i move this property to the optional properties or drop it from
the properties?

I assume that the replacement should apply only to the property
description not to the property name.

I have doubts about that. I agree that the current node name doesn't fit
to ePAPR. The function of a QCA7000 isn't really a ethernet device. Yes,
this linux driver implementation handle the QCA7000 as a ethernet
device. But the QCA7000 a powerline device according to Homeplug GreenPHY.

How about using powerline as node name?
