+1 for starting with compatible/reg/status that we would like to see
in the same spot in each node.

Not so sure on plain alphabetical. That has the same issue you pointed out
with splitting value vs boolean properties, related properties would end up
not grouped. Some like regulator- with the same prefix will, but think -gpios
that is a postfix, they would be scattered about.

How about just enforcing ordering on the couple common property we care about
seeing and everything else left free-hand as it today?
