Yep, I will fix it in next version.

It might not vary for a given SoC, but It does vary across the SoCs.
Also the versions of each service are independent to each other.

No, DAI's here are both backends and frontends, and some of the services
like core, USM are not DAI's

Are you also saying that we should have a single driver entity for all
these services?

APR bus depends on the state of DSP services, which can go off if the
DSP crashes or DSP is stopped. If we remove this sound card out of apr
bus then the sound card dependency on apr bus is totally lost.

Main purpose of having sound card under this bus is that the sound card
should register/unregister depending up the apr channel presence/absence
respectively.
