You're right. In se the DT ABI applies to the DTB, not to the DTS.

The definitions inside the include file are part of the DT bindings,
and thus cannot
be changed. Your DTS files get these definitions by including the header file,
so the header filename is also part of the bindings, and thus can't be changed
that easily.
