default-state has a bit different purpose - to prevent any
glitches/changes when probing driver. Other values should not be
controller by default, at least not for this specific LED. If you want
to change common LED bindings and LED maintainers agree, sure, that's
different case.

Your device does not require these default brightness/intensity
properties... or at least you did not provide rationale why your device
(not driver... you keep referring to driver for some reason) needs them.

Then your bindings and DTS do not represent the hardware.
