The oftree by design wants to be a complete hardware description. As you
mention above, there are cases where you *nevertheless* need ad-hoc
information about things *not* encoded into the device tree.

This renders the whole concept ad absurdum. You need a machine number
again - and if you need that: why not stay with the ARM model, define
everything with platform data and avoid the whole thing?

Because it's better to have a little platform specific code than a lot of it?
