Mine too. No matter what the spec says, it needs to say it clearly.

I still don't agree with Jan-Ivar about merging the two concepts
"supported by UA" and "supported by device" - I'd be much happier with
using different words for them, if that makes it clearer.

With "supported by UA", I mean "UA will recognize the dictionary key".

With "supported by device", I mean "device will be affected by changes
to this property".

Those may be better words.

Surveillance is pervasive. Go Dark.
