I think that's what the spec from last summer originally had actually;
maybe the implementation just got mixed up. I see that I perhaps didn't
make the spec completely clear:
P: <BSS properties - identical to old API BSSID properties> (read-only)
But yeah, each BSSID property should just be exposed as a property of
the object instead of a "Properties" property as a dict as you say.
