Because you don't care about device mode or restricted by the IP
configuration or SoC integration? The former is a user choice and
shouldn't be part of DT. The latter should be implied by an SoC
specific compatible string. Using only a compatible string for a
licensed IP is not specific enough as vendors use differing versions
and integrate them in different ways.
