U-Boot comes with its own DTB, so what does it means "loads the target
DTB"? From where? The one appended to the kernel zImage? No, it cannot...

Any component which operates on mainline DTB must conform to the
bindings (with respect to the ABI), thus your arguments here mean you
are not allowed to change ABI in the future. Never. This change,
assuming original binding was broken, could be warranted.
