Okay, so this is the same situation as Transmission where the shift
position is different than the actual transmission gear.  Correct?

If this is the case, we could add a separate attribute for
wiperSpeedSetting to the same interface?  Something like this:

interface Wiper
  attribute Setting wiperSpeedSetting; /// auto, 1, 2, etc
  attribute short wiperSpeed /// 1, 2, 3, etc

Good point.  Rear windows can have an openness, but not always and
certainly the windshield doesn't.  And side mirrors can have a defrost
but side-mirrors are not a window.  Can we add (presuming we don't
already have one) an interface for side mirror and have it contain a
defrost attribute as well?  Something like this:

interface Window
  attribute short ? openness;
  attribute boolean ? defroster;
  attribute Zone zone;

interface SideMirror
  attribute boolean ? defroster;
  /// postition attributes
  attribute Zone zone;

These could be part of the same interface but with a Zone.none value
for zone.  So if there were 2 zones, there would actually be 3 items
returned for that interface: none, driver and passenger.  The HVAC
item for zone "none" would have airRecirculation etc which don't have
a zone concept.
