It is generally a bad sign if there is a voltage range specified on a
regulator that's not got any indication that the voltage is going to be
actively managed, especially in situations like with several of the
supplies the DT was specifying where there are clear indications that
the supply is intended to be fixed voltage (or cases where every single
supply has a voltage range which would be highly unusual).  Looking at
the consumers might provide an explanation for such unusual and likely
incorrect constraints, and the lack of any consumers in conjunction with 
other warning signs reenforces those warning signs.
