For sure true. But this essentially means that since the standard was unclear it could be either way, right?

I would still suggest addressing this issue in a future standard version. One example would be an optional parameter returning a bitmap of allocated IDs (PDLen=32)

Since we are on it I cannot resist throwing another one in: Similar issues arise when detecting subdevices. That could be addressed in a similar manner by returning a bitmap of present subdevices (PDLen=64).
