Either the power consumed by the controller when strings aren't lit up
matters, in which case the driver should implement proper power
management or it doesn't matter and changing the pin state isn't needed.

I'm happy with either of the above but this looks like a third way,
where eager users could hack in a bit of extra power management by
forcing drivers to unbind.
