We are running the testing framework with support for P2P Device dedicated interface as this is the configuration we are most interested with, so we are trying to modify the framework/tests so they could also be valuable for such configuration. Saying that, I concur with the approach of adding P2P Device interface specific tests when needed, to avoid relying on the custom configurations.
