Personally the way I parse this situation is that the kernel is taking a look at what's in the DT and making an effort to present it usefully in the running systems. Fixing our current interpretation in stone as a supported thing when we don't have to makes it more cumbersome to improve and discourages any efforts to do similar things in the future. It is reasonable to provide and document something here but when there's some fairly simple and obvious better things we could be doing it should be those rather than the legacy stuff.

So what are the "simple and obvious better things" that one can use instead?
