I was able to make changes for each of your comments except the following...

This is an odd control that is a combination of an enum and a power
management widget. The 0 value of the enum  turns power off.
Not sure what is another choice. The enum value needs to be
saved so it can be restored when DAPM turns the control on.

It is not controlled by DAPM. The low power function is taken care of by
/SHDN\, so this retains the user choice of bandgap or divider reference.

Yes, for a soft reset where the device is not power cycled, DAPM has
the device go in and out of the low power /SHDN\ state, and the old
register values are retained. Without this, we would need to specify
that the PMIC power cycle the chip.
