The DT users usually look at the binding document [1] not the source code. So you need to extend the binding document before changing the source code within a patch series. At the end we need a DT maintainer's ACK for the binding change. Using the generic properties doesn't allow us to skip this, but it increases the chance of an ACK.

Ok, I got it, thank you, I will work on the patch v3.
