I still believe that having a generic mechanism for getting access to
device properties is useful and better than specific APIs, one for each

In essence the problem here is the same as in the other APIs you want to
discontinue: it has to be made clear that the API you are discontinuing
can also be a viable and useful approach. The only thing is that DAP has
decided to follow a different path. But does not mean that other options
are not valid.
