I flagged it "experimental" because the UPS-to-driver interface is not as robust as USB or serial, but that shouldn't affect the upsd-to-NAS connection. Once the driver starts, and assuming the UPS is not disconnected, things should work similarly to other drivers.
Gracefully handling disconnection is a known issue for the macosx-ups driver, and it is also known that the information provided by OS X is less detailed than what you would get from usbhid-ups on a non-OSX system. Hopefully the latter is not causing an issue: the NAS should not be relying on anything other than "ups.status" and possibly a few other variables.
