Thank you for you support! I updated the scpart-id description and hope
this should be clear enough. If so, I'll prepare PATCH v3.

 patternProperties:
   "@[0-9a-f]+$":
-    $ref: "partition.yaml#"
+    allOf:
+      - $ref: "partition.yaml#"
+      - if:
+          properties:
+            compatible:
+              contains:
+                const: sercomm,sc-partitions
+        then:
+          properties:
+            sercomm,scpart-id:
+              description: Partition id in Sercomm partition map. Mtd
+                parser uses this id to find a record in the partiton map
+                containing offset and size of the current partition. The
+                values from partition map overrides partition offset and
+                size defined in reg property of the dts. Frequently these
+                values are the same, but may differ if device has bad
+                eraseblocks on a flash.
