Well, for muxing, you need to no which endpoint is which mux input,
but if the muxing is at the board level, then that's really outside
this binding. For stereoscopic, don't you need both sensors to work at
the same time (i.e. not muxed). That would be multiple ports.

When would you have 2 output endpoints though? That could be to
different processing blocks, but those connections are internal,
fixed, and known. So you should document the numbering in that case.
