No, the or1200-pic is a part of the or1200 cpu that is one
(there are several others) implementation of the OpenRISC 1000 architecture.
The quirk here is that the OpenRISC 1000 architecture specification specifies
how a PIC should be implemented, but or1200 doesn't follow that to 100%.
Thus, it need a bit of special care.

The implementations that follow the specification can use the
or1k-pic-level and or1k-pic-edge variants.

The point I tried to make above was that if a change would be
made to the pic implementation in or1200, it should be a change to conform
to the specification.

I agree, and I think 'or1200-pic' is specific enough in this case.
