Even after going through this threads I am still unconvinced that
vcc-supply should be a requirement. Making this a mandatory property
would automatically imply using *_regulator_get() in a driver code
(on condition one is adding regulator support). In case there
isn't any physically connected we end up with a dummy one and a warning.

Is it how this should work?

Personally I would vote for a more descriptive node name, for example:
particulate-matter-sensor or air-pollution-sensor or other name
which clearly shows what device we are dealing with.
