Have in mind that led-max-microamp is a required property in some cases,
so skipping it and using per-device properties does not solve the
problem of adjusting proper currents. What if each LED you set for
something which in total gives more than your imax?

What Linux driver support does not matter here. Bindings should reflect
hardware and the same time not store register constants but logical
values (for current this is in uA).

Best regards,
