I had added this to my work progress i.MX patches to silence the noisy
"... latency exceeded, new value ..." warnings emitted by the power
domain framework:

You are right, this is just superficial.

I have one more, on i.MX6 I manually need to enable the clocks of
devices in the power domain during the power-up sequence so that the
reset signals can propagate.
So far, I have implemented this by registering the device clocks of
devices in the power domain with pm_clk_add and then let the genpd
power_on callback temporarily enable them using pm_clk_resume:

Whether this is needed seems to me to be a property of the power domain.
Do you think this is something we could add to of_genpd_add_to_domain,
depending on some flag set in struct generic_pm_domain?
I'd like to avoid having to register my own bus notifier and to deal
with ordering issues between that and of_genpd_notifier_call.
