[Nut-upsdev] apcsmart question

Before I start any commits.

In patch 2/18 -

Two "custom" commands slipped in: ups.firmware.old and
shutdown.return.grace. In 18/18 I tried to rename them and add
remainig commands for "hackish" shutdown methods, to make them easily
callable through e.g. upscmd (for example for testing).

Is it acceptable to add certain commands specific only to some driver
and documented in its manual page (but otherwise meaningless for the
rest of the drivers) ? Say with (in this case) a driver prefix, e.g.:

apcsmart.shutdown.grace (@nnn)
apcsmart.shutdown.grace.h (@nn)
apcsmart.shutdown.cs (force OB (U), then shutdown.return (S)  - aka 'CS hack')
apcsmart.firmware.old (V)

If not - how should I approach this ?
