In this specific case I think yes, but not on all options.

As dicussed earlier this was designed for systems where
you could set the pull-up resistance, like

bias-pull-up = <600000>;

would give 600kOhm pull up.

In most existing systems that is silly, as they can't specify
it, so they should be able to do just:


as that is all they can do. If we have to cut one way, we
should cut the former until such a system appears.
