And yet they were only removed from the in-kernel dts files in patch

Please leave this around.  Once a binding is used, we try to stay
compatible with it when practical.  Not all device trees in use come
straight from arch/powerpc/boot/dts (consider custom boards, and
firmware device tree manipulation), and even those that do come
straihgt from the kernel tree are not necessarily rebuilt at the same
time as the kernel.
