Yes I understand this and 1 DT child node per LED out but...

This device has a single register to control 3 LEDs brightness as a group and individual brightness
registers to control the LEDs independently to mix the LEDs to a specific color.

There needs to be a way to control both so that developers can mix and adjust the individual RGB and
then control the brightness of the group during run time without touching the "mixing" value.

I don't think a user needs nor would want to have 24 different LED nodes with 24 different brightness files.
Or with the LP5036 that would have 36 LED nodes.

Table 1 in the data sheet shows how the outputs map to the control banks to the LED registers.
