It's a bit of imperfect world here.

I always imagines it was some kind of enumerator
like source A, B or C... so 0, 1 defined in sime include/dt-bindings/*
would make most sense to me.

In general, use SI-units if you can, else use something that makes
sense for the people writing the device tree. These enumerators
seems to make sense.

If nothing makes any sense, maybe a custom property makes it
make sense.

Yours,
Linus Walleij
