Yes, absolutely. The compatible doesn't only define what the video
timings are, it defines the specific piece of hardware. While it is true
that the panel-simple driver currently doesn't use any other information
the DT compatible value characterizes the full hardware and therefore
should take into account all of the device's properties.

Presence of a touch panel sounds like a very important property and the
maximum backlight brightness might also become important at some ponit.
