I think the problem was cell-index was never well understood and abused. For the example you are giving you wouldn’t use cell-index because you are talking about things that would have different compatibles. For what it appears we really are enumerating the GSBI hardware to match some programming interface convention. If that is the case than I think cell-index is proper.
