Wouldn't it be a better approach to propose deprecating the field when 
there is a readily available alternative, i.e. not a spec from a 
different body in beta stage?

To me, this new SMC support will take an appreciable amount of time to 
be implemented in FW by SiPs when actually released. And if it requires 
an ATF upgrade - which I guess it does - then that's a big job.

Thanks,
John
