Please don't top post.

No, it's not okay. If the counter sizes are different, then have a
property for the counter size. Describe how they are different without
numbering them. If you can't describe the differences, then it shouldn't
matter which ones the OS picks to use.

I doubt the h/w manual calls these "IIO timers".
