I wasn't aware of this limitation, thanks for the clarification! With
this I understand that for now we indeed need the 8 thermal zones with
all the redundant information :(

Ok, it seems for now we need the 8 thermal zones in any case, when
support for multiple sensors becomes available we can evaluate whether
it's worth to change that or not.
