I did the following:

sudo halt
wait until "System halted" appears on the screen
"measured" the current value displayed on my PSU

You are right that not the same as poweroff. But in even in poweroff the board consumes 0.6 W, but in this case USB is powered down.

The BCM2835 SoC has a GPU and a ARM core. Linux is running only on the ARM core. The GPU is usually running a close source firmware, which is started at first during boot und runs all the time.

There isn't much implementation of power management for BCM2835 yet. So i wanted to start with USB.
Even for sleep/hibernation the consumption is much too high. Because the system consumes in idle 1.6 W.

AFAIK all RPis use the same USB IP core:

GHWCFG4 = 0x1ff00020
