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:

O: /fi/w1.wpa_supplicant1/Interfaces/<interface_number>/BSSs/<BSSID>
I: fi.w1.wpa_supplicant1.Interface.BSS

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.
