so do you think it would be better to create phys as a string of the
source and destination address like "<src>-<dst>" for Bluetooth. And
then keep the uniq empty like all USB devices without serial number do?

I'd keep uniq as is and do what you proposed with phys. This way you
can either use uniq to identify your device while moving it from one
receiver to another (if you have several) or do exact match on phys to
get receiver/device pair.

Does this make sense?
