I cannot parse this, the board for me is a SoC, busses and a
number of components connected via e.g. I2C.

Can you define what you mean with a "board specific property"?
It seems you are talking about what I would call an
"SoC-specific property", i.e. something out of a .dtsi file for
a certain SoC, whereas the .dts for an entire board is,
well, for a board, a set of components on a PCB.

The arrangement of accelerometers and battery monitors on a
certain board is board-specific, and it is also by definition
