What you're really talking about is making MAINTAINERS complete which is
a very big job; even if only looking at the DT bindings you'd need to go
through every binding and make sure that MAINTAINERS says the same
things as it does for the matching driver code, and where there are
missing entries add them.  In the immediate case both bits are missing.

Really as with so much else it's much better advice to ask people to
look and think about what they're doing; it's the same thing as ensuring
that commit logs match the standard style for the thing being edited
(especially the subject lines) and that if there's people who normally
apply patches and work on the code they're included.
