The above two sentences are software policy, not hardware description.
Hence they do not belong in the DT bindings document.
You can move them to the commit description, though.

Please use "renesas,r7s72100-ostm" instead, to match current practices.

Are the channels truly independent? If yes, I think it's better to have two
separate device nodes, one for each channel.
Each channel has its own module clock, so using separate devices means
Runtime PM can manage both channels through their module clocks as soon as
you add a "power-domains" property pointing to the clock domain controller.
