Re: [web-bluetooth] Consider merging `txPower` and `rssi` into `pathLoss`

@jhedberg mentions that applications have been able to give a rough 
distance estimate using _only_ RSSI when TX Power isn't available. 
This implies that many devices are transmitting at similar powers: 
maybe we can document that assumed power so people can combine lists 
sorted by path-loss and by just RSSI.

This either seems like a good reason to keep the fields split out, or 
a reason to use that assumed power in computing the `pathLoss` field. 
But we'd need to add a marker that the pathLoss is approximate, which 
argues more toward keeping the fields separate.
