Currently the only case for "not applicable" is when the monitor is disconnected, but sicne the properties are so
interdependent, there might be a case in the future where e.g. a color format that has no differentiation between full
and limited arises. When there is no special unset/not applicable option, the userspace has to know exactly when an
option is valid or not, possible requiring additional logic.

Setting a "not applicable" value allows userspace to be more dumb, without much hassle on the kernelspace side.
