Alright. I see your point. What about I'd provide a sort of opposite
implementation? I could make the "regmap"-phandle reference being optional
in the !"syscon-reboot"! driver instead of adding the regmap-property
support to the "syscon-reboot-mode" driver. So if regmap property isn't
defined in the "syscon-reboot"-compatible node, the driver will try to
get a syscon regmap from the parental node as it's done in the
"syscon-reboot-mode" driver.

Seeing you think that regmap-property-based design is a bad practice in
this case, I also could mark the property as deprecated in the "syscon-reboot"
dt schema and print a warning from the "syscon-reboot" driver if one is defined.

What do you think?
