I understand there are some design considerations still apparently
unresolved wrt devicetree representation.

However, there were significant lifetime issues in v3 and I'd like some
time to review v4 to understand how those were resolved, and study the

Maintainers are busy people and often don't provide design steering
until the other pieces are ack'd.

I'd like to see _a_ solution eventually, so let's move this process along.
