You are correct about one side of this - SPI controller bindings.
However these schemas here have clear: additional/unevaluatedProperties:
false, thus when they find DTS like:
panel@xxx {
compatible = "one of these spi panels";
spi-rx-delay-us = <50>;
... and some more from specific controllers

you will get errors, because the panel schema does not allow them.

The bindings were done (some time ago) in such way, that they require
that both SPI controller and SPI device reference spi-props.

Best regards,
