Here's the (hopefully) final patches to device properties in the server.
As mentioned in [1], Configure/Query property functionality and requests have
been culled.

Patch 1 removes these requests. An updated inputproto is required as well of
Patch 2 allows property handlers to return status codes instead of just
TRUE/FALSE. These status codes (if != Success) are returned to the client
as errors.
Patch 3 asks handlers before the deletion of a property. This allows a handler
to implement immutable properties.

Updated inputproto and evdev patches that conform to this implementation are
waiting and can be pushed. Documentation update is nearly there and will be
pushed with the pack.
