Do we need a kernel summit discussion, or do we just need a good
document?  Or, to phrase the question another way, are we lacking a
consensus among the clueful regarding how device tree bindings should be
designed, or are we simply lacking education?  If it's the latter, I don't
think a kernel summit session will help much.  

If the problem is really one of getting the design principles set down in
a comprehensible way, I might just be able to help a bit, maybe.
