Yeah, and this all is a sign that you should just keep the current
binding, and make your code use it, see?

You are free to use Sebastian's updated binding. It has "suggested by:
Rob" or something like that on it, so it should be fine.

You can add note to bindings/leds pointing to mfd binding.

Now... this is what I've suggested before. If you don't agree, you may
want to contact Tony Lindgren, IIRC he works for TI, too, and might be
willing to help.

Thank you,
