It's perhaps not as likely, but still possible.

I don't think this is needed either. Like I said earlier, since the
driver has an internal maximum number of PHYs that it supports the
maximum that can be specified in the DTS is irrelevant. If it doesn't
support a new one, then it will simply return an error. And I would
assume that if somebody added support for a new PHY type then they
probably wouldn't forget to update the driver since they're modifying
it anyway and testing will fail if they don't.
