I assume these values all have to be in the range MIN_QP to MAX_QP?
If so, then this should be documented I think.

How do these controls relate to MIN_QP and MAX_QP?

Should this perhaps be a bool instead of an enum? Assuming this represents a
single bit. I'm not saying enum is wrong, I just wondered what makes the most
sense.

Can you add the full name for IDR in brackets, just as you did for CRA?
