It's a de facto standard - several other vendors implement TDM in
exactly the same fashion. If you think about it this is a natural way
to handle TDM in I2S.

The timing you're showing there is essentially a DSP mode with the left
and right channels alternating rather than an I2S style where the
polarity of the LRCLK signal indicates if the data transmitted at the
same time is for the left or right channel. I'd need to think about it
in slightly more detail but probably it is actually a DSP mode - with
the DSP modes only one edge of the frame sync is used so the other edge
can be anywhere else within the frame.

Yes, that's DSP mode.

That's fairly standard and not really a practical problem. Since
applications can address each channel of a stereo control independantly
they don't loose any control from grouping the channels together.
Having the stereo controls just makes it a bit easier when they are used
