The device-tree describes hardware, and how a particular driver happens
to implement a binding is not relevant.

That said, there is a bit of an on-going, shall we say philosophical,
debate about this. The regulator maintainer takes a firm position that
all mandatory physical supplies should be represented in firmware

while Rob appears to take a slightly different stance on fixed
regulators while admitting that this an issue which has not yet been
fully resolved:

Since this is a new binding, and the hardware requires the vcc supply
and this is reflected in the binding, I think you should add a fixed
regulator. At least until you hear otherwise. ;)
