It's not a "placeholder", it's absolutely necessary because this range
is implicitly decoded by any VGA capable device in the system.

Therefore no device should ever be allocated that part of the address

If OBP is allocating this range to non-VGA devices, it's buggy, and is
risking multiple devices responding at the same time to an I/O space
