We are of course free to go away from the ePAPR flat device tree (we did
already to some extent).
Though I wonder whether we should really do this though for something as
cosmetic as the address seperator.
@ is "at", naturally describing a path or an address where something can
be found. I am biased, I used this way of writing paths for 10 years.

I agree with Segher we should stay close to the "original". That's why
we used dtc for our device tree creation to begin with. It has a
recognition effect, making it easier for others to join in.
Also, at some point we're not writing the DTS manually anymore anyways,
so it doesn't really matter ;-))
