Because in staging drivers graduations we often hold off doing the
dt-bindings document until we have full visibility of where we are going.

A lot of them have dodgy DT bindings (and that might even be the reason
they are in staging). What we don't want is to have a doc for a silly
binding in the 'official' list as we'll have to support it for ever.

It needs documenting before moving out staging, but not necessarily now.
Particularly as this device is complex and has a 'lot' of other stuff
that isn't currently supported and quite possibly never will be.
Some of that would have non obvious dt bindings if we did support it.
For example we 'might' route the encoder outputs round to the inputs
of a counter driver and end up with a complex entity representing
the facilities that both fo them provide.

Agreed, the DT binding doc needs to come soon and before the move out
staging, but I am quite happy with it being in the next series.

A line in the description to that effect would have been useful of
course!
