Right.

I'd be interested to know how using node name(s) to match the driver
data (like regulators do) is seen in general? Is this a bad idea for
LEDs? Would it be better to have a leds-compatible (like we had
regulator-compatible before)?

If node names can be used - would

	led1@1 {

	};

	led2@2 {

	};
	... do?

Using node names as key requires them to be unique. Other option could
be doing the search based on node name and unit-address combination - 
but if unit-address depends on board the led is placed - then driver
might not know it. Should I convert the RFC to introduce and use led-
compatible?
