And in my proposal, I suggested that clocks without drivers are
good candidates to list in the domain, with the caveat that the be
called out (documented) as being device clocks that are missing a
driver, so when a driver shows up they can be moved accordingly, and in
a way that actually describes the hardware.

I understand.  And that "quirk" is not unique to rockchip socs.
