Per Documentation/leds/leds-class.txt, LED devices are named

This document also states "The naming scheme above leaves scope
for further attributes should they be needed". It does not permit,
however, to redefine one of the fields to mean "location", much less
the declaration that a devicename of "platform" shall refer to an
"internal" backlight, or that there shall be no more than one
"internal" backlight in a given system.

On top of that, with this naming scheme any system with more than
one internal backlight may result in duplicate sysfs attribute names.

If an attribute for "location" is desired or necessary as part of
the LED attribute name, such a change should be well defined, and
it should be documented, and it must not create the risk of
duplicate sysfs attribute names.
