I missed the reason you wanted the name changed; I commented at the time that for IEEE 1275, the name property at the root node is supposed to be the platform name. Why do you want it called "device-tree", which would certainly be incorrect?
Believe it or not, it's actually what Apple use for the device name for the root node of their OF device trees: see http://web.archive.org/web/20090107145016/http://penguinppc.org/historical/d.... for an example.
Although I would also argue that using this method to detect the platform being used is a fairly brain-dead client behaviour too...
