Your display driver should choose whatever it is capable of outputting.
If the display reports that it can do 16 bits-per-color, but your
display driver can't do it, then it should choose a configuration that
it supports. Similarily for the color encodings. If you can't generate
YCrCb444 with your hardware, then it's the driver's job to know about
that and select the next appropriate configuration.

But hard-coding this is not the right solution because the value in DT
may end up conflicting with what the display reports.
