Ok. I get it now. The MMIO nodes will be interconnect providers and
they'll know what RSCs they can use by exposing the same RSC "resource"
multiple times for each RSC that can be targeted? This is what the
postfix is with _DISP on your examples? Presumably there's an _APPS
version of the same prefixed endpoint in case the consumer wants to use
the APPS RSC instead of the DISP one, or maybe there's just no postfix
in this case because APPS is the "default".
