Yeah, thus far we went with "new properties should have the old
behaviour as default, no cap/flag needed". If you mix old&new
userspace and stuff starts looking funny, that's not a regression imo.
Also, it's a very uncommon use-case.
Wrt reset to default: fbdev emulation should do that for anything
that's too fancy, which is generally enough for the "developer of
compositors" use case. That part might be missing in the gamma/ctm
support in general I think.
