I'm a little uncomfortable setting the LED current via a personality. If the wrong current setting is used, it has the potential to damage the connected LEDs. Typically, something that can damage hardware isn't the kind of setting you want to expose via a personality; It's too easy for the user to set (or mis-set).

Can you tell us a bit more about the product? Typically the max current for an LED is pre-set at the factory based on the specific LED emitters being used. If it is a factory only setting, that's a perfect application for a manufacturer specific PID.
