I'll clarify that.

According to [1] it is reserved, and it's reserved in the I3C spec
anyway (see "Table 9 I3C Slave Address Restrictions" in the I3C spec).

One extra question for you: should I refer to the I3C_DEV(),
I3C_DEV_WITH_STATIC_ADDR() and I2C_DEV() macros in the bindings doc?
And if I do, should I use them my example?

Thanks,
