This is also how I've always understood VID/PID pairs, as one product with a specific and fixed feature set.

Linux and MacOS seem to match USB interface class and subclass numbers. Not sure if it is possible to use that with Windows too.

IMHO the bootloader really requires a separate PID as it makes DFU flashing a lot more convenient. I would prefer to also have a VID/PID for examples, but I can imagine that they don't allow that use case.
