You might want to have this say "Adapteva Parallella Board" instead
(just noticed).

No, please add it from day one, otherwise everybody needs to update
their device tree, some will miss doing it, etc, etc. It's a simple
and trivial thing to do, and no reason to leave it o ut.

Ok. It's become commonplace to leave memory empty for the machines
where it's guaranteed that the bootloader will have updated it, to
avoid having stale or incorrect values in the static tree. I'm not
going to be strict about it, but it's something to consider.
