That's what we currently have, but we regularly get complaints from
developers using our board (DB410c).

We're maintaining a Debian-based and an OpenEmbedded-based build and at
least in the past btmgmt was not available in these - so we would have
to maintain both a custom BlueZ package and then some scripts to inject
the appropriate mac address.

Beyond these reference builds our users tend to build their own system
images and I was hoping that they would not be forced to have a custom
hook running each time hci0 is registered.

While I share your skepticism here I find it way superior over the
various cases where this information is hard coded in some firmware file
that has to be patched for each device - in particular when considering
the out-of-tree workarounds that follow when said firmware file is not
allowed to be modified on the device (e.g. in Android).

And note that it's not _stored_ in DT, it's passed from the boot loader
in DT - and it's still optional, so if an OEM has other means to
provision the BD_ADDR they can still handle this in user space.
