Yes it would be undefined.

I was thinking the same maybe we can return the successfully set mask?  
And the application can use software parser to parse the rest?.

Agreed.

I think if we are ok with the above approach i.e. returning successfully set ptypes, 
we will return 0 if there are no supported get/set call backs and the application 
can softparse the ptypes.
