Yes, it is quite strict, but in the long term helps - people explicitly
need to enable/fill properties in new board DTSes, which hopefully will
trigger some thinking - "do I really have 385 MHz XO clock"?

Although here it might not really important, but that approach is useful
for all other cases, including aliases and buses. And one day, such
clear design will help new guys doing new hardware bring-up and they
will say: "I will start my new DTS board on some examples from mainline". :)

Best regards,
