iMX6UL - Connect unused ADDR lines on DDR3?

I'm currently working on the design of a board which uses a i.MX6UL + DDR3 RAM memory.

At the moment we selected a 1Gb DDR3 (x16), but we might change it to 2Gb in the future.


The only difference when switching between capacity is the number of address lines used:

- Only ADDR[0..12] for 1Gb

- ADDR[0..13] for 2Gb

- ADDR[0..14] for 4Gb



As unused ADDR lines are recommended to be NC, is it an issue if those lines are connected after all to ensure higher capacity compatibility?
