Well, they do avoid the legibility issues that tend to plague device
tree - I don't really mind if they're in the property names (as with
regulator supply properties) or in the data but having something that is
directly legible is a substantial win. Constants deal with this in the
source but they make runtime debugging more painful which isn't ideal.
