I have no problem really with this approach, other than right now with your
patch there's no way to actually set the PDOs other than the 2 functions to
update source and sink capabilities. Previously you had the option, at least
through the fusb302 driver, to configure the max_snk_* values from DT, but your
patch obviously changes this behaviour. I think we need a FW based method of
configuring these at startup at least, as with your current patch the values
being used are hard coded. As this is generic for TCPM I would guess DT bindings
(and maybe equivalent ACPI properties as well I guess) would be a sensible

My initial implementation was based on the approach before your changes, and
actually for PPS this to me made sense, at least from the sink side. We are
dealing with a range of voltages and currents so the important points are the
maximum values. However, if we're now making decisions based on sink PDOs then
I can look at adapting.
