Actually, we could retrieve BCR/DCR/PID (and all other relevant
information, like MAXDS) even with the SETDASA approach. We just
need to send the according CCC commands after SETDASA.

But that's also my understanding that ENTDAA should always work, and
SETDASA usage is only needed if you want to reserve a dynamic address
and assign it to a device before DAA takes place. This way you can
enforce the device priority (WRT IBIs). But honestly, that's the only
use case I can think of, and to me, it sounds like an advanced feature
we may want to support at some point, but don't need in the initial
