You have found a  type of a thing (e.g. southbridge) and you want to
find the operations for that thing. You need an ID to do that.

One option is we just adopt a very standardized format for the string
that defines a thing, e.g. your earlier suggestion:
"PCI:8086.8259" is the standard string for a PCI identifier.
