It will be required if we use 'reg' property for enumeration address per 
my understanding (address-cells: 6, size-cells: 0)
I thought about using 'reg' and it seemed to work as well. Only reason 
for using 'enumeration-addr' was to be closer to what HW calls it.
Looking at other device-trees, (that 'reg' was used for other buses to 
represent slave address), I will document the 'reg' property and 
document it.
Thanks
