It's not. See power on sequence in

Driver can talk to the panel over AUX channel only after t1+t3, t1 is
up to 10ms, t3 is up to 200ms. It works with older version of driver
that keeps panel always on because it takes a while between driver
probe and pipeline start.

It'll likely break with newer version of driver that turns on panel
only when bridge is active. You'll see AUX timeouts - it won't be able
to probe EDID in some cases. Problem can be intermittent and device

All in all - you don't need panel timings since there's EDID but you
still need panel delays. Anyway, it's up to you and maintainers.
