Would this apply to something besides ADCs?

This seems overly complicated for just describing a couple of resistors
on an ADC. OTOH, keeping the ADC node and what's attached to the ADC
separate

Perhaps the type should be part of the compatible. For example, if you
have a current measurement resistor/circuit, then the compatible should
be based on that.

parent doesn't seem to describe something about the h/w.
