It's particularly helpful on things like RPI, etc... a lot of the folks who make add-on boards supply a .dtbo for their board, and the RPI firmware even supports reading the overload from an EERPOM on the board.  That's essentially what I'm doing (sans the EEPROM).

I could do that, but it'd be gross.  I'd rather use the overlay mechanism if I can get it to work.
