We obviously need to retain backward compatibility, so on the driver side you
need to treat those power supplies as optional. From a DT bindings point of
view, however, I think they should be mandatory for new DT.

The GPIOs properties are different in my opinion, as there's no requirement to
connect for instance the reset pin to a GPIO controllable by the SoC. The pin
could be hardwired to VCC, or connected to a system reset that is
automatically managed without SoC intervention. The power supplies, however,
are mandatory, in the sense that the chip will not work if you leave the power
supplies unconnected.

You're welcome !
