Interesting, but the IO capability matching logic lives under the
kernel so I wonder how useful this information is if you can't really
do much about the authentication method used? And in case you are
thinking of changing the pairing procedure to just leave it up to the
upper layer to figure it out, I don't think that is a good idea
because that is subject to qualification that would effectively be a
new implementation.
