I suggest this be a topic in the UWA, as it's really a vocabulary issue only. It should make no difference to the SysInfo API as that is only a means to determine values for supported device properties.

Sounds like the feature belongs to the "too complicated for this version 
of sysInfo", as defined in ACTION-80. If people agree, I'd rather stick 
to a boolean type.
