Yes.

You only need the 2-Nth instance addresses. A non-matching address can
be instance 0.

Well, this was not my first suggestion.

So? The only difference here is an additional mapping step.

Don't use cell-index. Consider it a deprecated relic from OF that is
not used on FDT (though there probably are some cases it did get
used).
