When choosing the best location for the bindings page please consider  
it uniform enough so that various OSes can use it as a reference. We  
are very much interested in bringing FDT support for embedded FreeBSD  
(arm, powerpc), and one of the uncertainties is how to deal with  
existing Linux bindings definitions: at the moment they are maintained  
as part of kernel source tree, and there are doubts whether we should  
come up with our own set (most likely *very* similar), which we'd like  
to avoid.
