I don't think using CAPI was mandatory in the past, and I don't remember
any communication that it is mandatory now. It used to be okay to call
Bluez directly and several components do it, so those components will
have to be changed once using the Bluetooth CAPI becomes mandatory.

I'm intentionally not calling out these components here. Coming up with
a complete list is part of the preparations for enforcing access through
the CAPI.

I know how I would do it. My question was more "does the Bluetooth team
know and will they do it?"
