Sure, I can add some comments outlining future developments in
v4l2-device.h and v4l2-subdev.h. The v4l2-framework document can point
to those headers (headers are easier to keep in sync when new features
arrive than documentation).

But I'll wait with this until I get Mauro's review back, just in case
there are more changes for me to do.
