Generally, no. The order should be defined still.

A crystal would still be a fixed-clock. Does s/w need to know which one it is?

Your's is a case where index alone doesn't work and you need
clock-names. But still, you should define the order for when both
clocks are present so we don't end with both orders for no good
reason.

clocks can just say something like "1 or 2 clocks as defined in clock-names".
