Dynamically change enumeration list of DRM enumeration property

For creating new source property, is it good to follow
"drm_mode_create_hdmi_colorspace_property()" as an example ? It seems that
currently there is no standard DRM property which allows DRM client to set
a specific output encoding (like YUV420, YUV422 etc). Also, there is no
standard property for letting client select YUV/RGB color range. I see
there are two ways to introduce new properties, 1. do something like
drm_mode_create_hdmi_colorspace_property 2. create custom property similar
to "Broadcast RGB". Is there opinion on which is a preferable way to expose
encoding and color rage selection property ?
