I just saw this in the pull request:

Please don't put these aliases into a .dtsi file, as not every board
will provide each instance. The entire point of the aliases is to
have sane enumeration, so you should start at index 0 for the
first one that is actually present and count up from there.

I would suggest you move these aliases into the .dts files for
the existing boards for the next cycle, and then make sure
only the ones that are present have an alias.

It might actually be a good idea to have a warning in dtc when
there is an alias pointing to a status="disabled" device, but I
suspect there would be a lot of fallout from that.
