Isn't a large part of the backlog cases of we need DT bindings for X?
There are cases like moving platforms to common clk, but is there
anything to discuss for those? Most of those cases need bodies to work
on them. It seems like the rest of the todo lists could become an all
DT discussion. I'm not saying it shouldn't happen, just pointing out
where I think sprint discussions will go.

I do think having todo lists would be valuable. I would like to see
more than a one off list and have a living document. Linus W had a
great spreadsheet on this for multi-platform enablement. Perhaps this
would spur people to do some of the clean-ups (or it will just bit rot
:( ).
