I think you are saying that there are no real rules or governing body
for _DSD properties, that _DSD properties are free for all, subject to no
scrutiny, that a database with assigned _DSD properties does not exist,
and that therefore there is no means for me to determine if this is an
approved property.

What prevents someone else to use a different property name for the same
driver and property next week, on a different product using the same
hardware ?
