Some follow-up thoughts, could someone clarify please?

So if default trigger can be set in DTS, then it should be set there,
I can see the rationale. But in this case it's not added to the system
config and so repurpusing it for other tasks (or just disabling the
LED) is not straight-forward anymore, as one would need to add it

Should a uci-defaults script be added to base-files that would
populate the system config with all the LEDs present in the DT but not
added by board config?
