Technically 2708 is the family, and 2835 is a specific implementation.
We now know that 2835 is the only implementation in the family that can run linux, (and there won't be new models of this family), so it probably doesn't matter which model is used, although it should be consistent.

If we wanted to use BCM2835, it would make sense also to use BCM2836.
So it would be BOARDNAME:=Broadcom BCM2708/BCM2835/BCM2709/BCM2836, which is kinda long :$.

I suggest either using BCM2708/BCM2709 or BCM2835/BCM2836, but using both seems weird, at least for me.
