I'd replace this property with led-max-microamp
(see Documentation/devicetree/bindings/leds/common.txt) and let
the driver to decide which power source to choose, basing on that limit.

The rgb DT node name would be a bit misleading in this case, since
RGB usually implies the possibility of having different intensity
of each color.

Pavel made and attempt of reworking Heiner Kallweit's HSV approach
few months ago [0]. You can take a look and share your opinion
or even continue this effort.

Agreed.
