I think the IP is actually OTG capable, the registers are there, but the
signals seem not to be available on the SoC package. That is also what
the RM says...

Quotes from the RM:

"OTG controller should be treated as
Dual role controller that allows the
controller to act as either a Host or a
device with no support for HNP/SRP."

And later, in Chapter 11.1:

"The USB is not a true OTG. It can be configured by software to function
either as
peripheral or as host. The ID pin, which is unique for OTG operation, is
not present in
this implementation. There are no five pin interface. The user will get
four pin host/
device interface."
