Many downstream boards tend not to have an specific compatible at least
during initial phase and I would like folks to start using checks to
make sure that the easy to catch issues via match against bindings are
already handled.

I am curious as to why you think this is wrong - because we permit an
alternative option that allows the board files to be less specific?
