This is a property of the consumer devices and not of the bus. It's fine
for devices to have different bandwidth needs and to be connected to a
shared bus. In this case the framework knows the topology and can
determine which parts of the bus are shared and aggregate the traffic
accordingly.

Agree! Of course!

Thanks,
