Documentation/devicetree/bindings/gpio/gpio.txt says:
"While a non-existent <name> is considered valid
for compatibility reasons (resolving to the "gpios" property),
it is not allowed for new bindings."

This is not a new binding, so there should be no reason to change it.

gpiod_get() and friends support this by using the "gpios" property if
they are passed a NULL con_id.
of_find_gpio() in drivers/gpio/gpiolib-of.c contains the relevant code.
