The Divining Tongue doesn't have "and cannot be used again until the devadragonet stops sensing the overwhelming presence for 1 to 3 minutes (4d6 + 6 rounds)" in the current Enworld Devadragonet but uses a combination of that and the old wording of "and cannot be used again until the presence has moved out of sense range and the devadragonet has a short rest".

Come to think of it, that paragraph should also have "chili, or the spray" at the end instead of just "chili, the spray of a skunk."

Will correct that.

The paragraph formatting in Heavenscent Breath is messed up, but I appreciate that D&D Beyond isn't cooperating with you there!

Added the flavour text "Variant" text to the Description, but I don't care for the title of Variant: Celestial Familiar. For a start, the Monster Manual subentry title text uses SMALL CAPS and is Bold rather than Bold Italic. That formatting helps it stand out from the rest of the test.

Also, if we follow the lead of the Quasit and Imp it should have the creature's name in the title (i.e. "Devadragon Familiar" rather than "Celestial Familiar" and have an introductory paragraph.

Monster Manual said:
VARIANT: QUASIT FAMILIAR
Mortal spellcasters interested in extraplanar familiars find quasits easy to summon and eager to serve. The quasit plays the part of the obsequious servant. It serves its master well, but it goads the mortal to greater and greater acts of chaos and evil. Such quasits have the following trait.
Familiar. The quasit can serve another creature as a familiar, forming a telepathic bond with its willing master. While the two are bonded, the master can sense what the quasit senses as long as they are within 1 mile of each other. While the quasit is within 10 feet of its master, the master shares the quasit's Magic Resistance trait. At any time and for any reason, the quasit can end its service as a familiar, ending the telepathic bond.

Let's see what I can persuade Enworld to do…

Variant: Devadragonet Familiar
The devadragonet can enter into a contract to serve another creature as a familiar…

VARIANT: DEVADRAGONET FAMILIAR
The devadragonet can enter into a contract to serve another creature as a familiar…

VARIANT: DEVADRAGONET FAMILIAR
The devadragonet can enter into a contract to serve another creature as a familiar…

How about…

VARIANT: DEVADRAGONET FAMILIAR
Devadragonets sometimes serve mortal spellcasters as helpers, advisors, and familiars. The devadragonet is a self-effacing and diligent servant, but constantly encourages its master to acts of mercy and charity and warning against evil behavior. Should the mortal do anything immoral the baby bahamut pleads with them to rectify the sinful act and mend their ways, no matter how minor the peccadillo. Such devadragonets have the following trait.
Familiar. The devadragonet can enter into a contract to serve another creature as a familiar, forming a telepathic bond with its willing master. While the two are bonded, the master can sense what the devadragon senses as long as they are within 1 mile of each other. While the devadragonet is within 10 feet of its master, the master shares the devadragon’s Magic Resistance trait. If its master violates the terms of the contract, the devadragon can end its service as a familiar, ending the telepathic bond.

Since you gave the post a thumb's up I'll add it to the Devadragonet.

By the way, don't forget to fix the grammatical error in Heavenscent Breath by adding an "or"…

Come to think of it, that paragraph should also have "chili, or the spray" at the end instead of just "chili, the spray of a skunk."

…and with that, I think it's done!
