Ah, it is only for indicating support to receive greenfield format. Ok,
in that case, it sounds fine to include that in the mask (and same for
Short GI for 20/40 MHz and I guess, Rx STBC for that matter; I guess max
A-MSDU length could be included, too, should someone care about it). In
other words, yes, I'm fine with including RX only features in this way
when they do not cause issues for STAs that do not support matching
