Ah, good point.  My inclination would be to, rather than check how we 
got to the node, check whether it's the device's parent.  If not, then 
the presence of #address-cells (other than zero for compatibility) is an 
error.  Otherwise, #address-cells is used, and defaults are handled the 
same as with reg/ranges translation.
