No worries.

Agreed. No access should be made to the default addresses for the secondary
I2C clients, otherwise there's a risk of conflict.

When only one ADV7511 is present, but conflicts with another device, we could
reprogram the other device only (assuming it doesn't lose its configuration in
low-power mode), or reprogram both.

I agree.
