The bindings say:

== Generic pin multiplexing node content ==

pin multiplexing nodes:

function - the mux function to select
groups - the list of groups to select with this function


state_0_node_a {
function = "uart0";
groups = "u0rxtx", "u0rtscts";
state_1_node_a {
function = "spi0";
groups = "spi0pins";

== Generic pin configuration node content ==

Supported generic properties are:

pins - the list of pins that properties in the node
apply to (either this or "group" has to be
group - the group to apply the properties to, if the driver
supports configuration of whole groups rather than
individual pins (either this or "pins" has to be

It is not explicit that they have to be separate nodes but if needed
we can state that more clearly.

I think so.
