I am interested in this, as we seem to be repeating the quantity
issue with the board file of having many .dts sources in the kernel.

I'm not sure how to deal with this, on one hand only having the
reference (and possibly popular) boards is going to keep the size
down. On the other hand out of tree .dts files are going to be
difficult to find (or vanish with the vendor).

It seems we are still no closer to having a DT repository outside
the kernel.
