So, there's two separate issues here: one is if it makes sense to do a
generic power domain framework and/or, and the other is if it makes
sense for that generic power domain framework to be part of the
regulator API. I do agree that separating out the common bits of power
domain implementation would be good, my concerns here are around the
level of integration with the regulator API.
