Yes, the names are mostly stable. ST-Ericsson renamed their dts files
and it caused some pain, some build environments have them hardcoded,
etc.

Still, it is a good idea to start adding new ones using family or
vendor prefixes, so they are easier to group. Please keep that in mind
on new ones too, Jason -- I don't think I've discussed with you in the
past. :-)
