I would vote for supported_*

>> 4. partner_alt_modes - Lists partner's Alternate Modes when connected
>> 5. partner_type - Can be USB, Charger, Alt Mode or Accessory
>> 6. data_role - The current data role, host or device

>> 9. power_roles - Power roles supported by the connector
>> 10. power_operation_mode - The current power level in use
>> 11. usb_pd - yes if the connector supports USB PD.
>> 12. audio_accessory - yes if the connector supports Audio Accessory
>> 13. debug_accessory - yes if the connector supports Debug Accessory
