I was considering something similar too. But then moved to this format
as I thought this was unambiguous. Also moving to a binary attribute
will reduces code only in show_fastsleep_workaround_state which I don't
feel is much.
That said, if you feel strongly about it, I can change it to the format
you suggested.

Thanks,
