Calling to SecureOS doesn't sound like a "choice" to me. It's part of the
platform, and if it's present then you have to use it, otherwise major
functionality (i.e., SMP) broken.

Having a proper node still makes sense, because you can put a
"compatible" property on it to track interface compatibility etc. This
was the view taken for PSCI (though in practice, we do have additional
information to put in the DT for that anyway).
