    Well, if we're going to go with an existing idiom the normal thing would
    be an ordered array which is absolutely abysmal from a usability
    standpoint. Compatible properties don't work as the whole reason we
    have an issue here is that people want to have a single node
    representing a group of regulators - for regulators which we can add a
    compatible property to we're already doing that and have no issue.

    What device tree seems to need rather badly is a way of representing
    key/value pairs - aside from the legacy bindings that seems to be the
    major source of pain when trying to contort things into DT.

    Using the "regulator" string that we have to put in the binding (which
    is currently totally meaningless) does seem like a good way forward
