I'm lost: what RTD binding?

Don't. They are effectively different types of devices and we just end
up with a more complex binding if we try to cover them all.

There is an argument to go the other way and actually have bindings for
individual temperature sensors like the LTC2997. Then the parameters
become a driver problem rather than one for the binding.
