Given that typically people will need to grep for the name of the actual
device they have to find the docs (not always obvious where in the documentation
their bindings will lie), it perhaps makes sense to put these simple devices
in trivial-devices.txt.

Anyhow, it is how it is currently done and we can always unwind it later to separate
files so, yes - please do move this and if missing add the invense entry as well
as Mark has requested.
