May be I don't understand the exact configuration you are referring, but
if you don't use ACPI PM, how will that system enter sleep states ?
IIUC you are referring suspend-to-idle case only here which doesn't
require any ACPI _Sx methods, which make sense.

But still I don't see a strong reason to provide an alternate method to
specify the same information. Firmware responsible for ACPI tables have
to specify this DSD in question, instead it can use the existing
mechanism in ACPI.

Let me know if I am missing some information about the systems you are
referring ?
