Is possible and allowed by the BT spec.
I'm sure someone will come up with a good use case for having both 
enabled for the same characteristic.

> What behavior do you want when the requested write type isn't among 
the characteristic's properties?
I'd say if `with-response` was explicitly specified, error out the way
 you would do normally when an operation is attempted that isn't 
allowed. If it's not explicitly specified, fallback to write with 
response?

> I suspect the API shape will be writeValue(value, {type: 
'without-response'})
Sounds good to me!
