You don't have to handle interrupts in the driver in order to declare
the interrupts property in the bindings. If the device has an interrupt
output that is meant to be connected to an interrupt input of the SoC,
then an interrupt property should describe how that signal is connected.
You can upstream support for those devices in the driver without
handlign the interrupt, it can be added later.

The bindings and drivers file names are usually related, as they support
the same device, but there's no specific rule that requires that.
