I did not move everything from the gpio.txt and it is really nicely
explained there. I think to leave it as it works as a overview/guide
better than YAML.

You mean the same way as generic schema for GPIO controllers work?
This could be done but the point is to enforce the GPIO controller
bindings in GPIO controllers, so also in cases when someone forgets to
add "gpio-controller" property. Although, if given GPIO controller
schema requires "gpio-controller" then indeed select would work...
