What's the point in explicitly listing addons - if they are put into
devices.d directory, they are going to be called anyway. Well,
probably not necessarily devices.d - if we define capability
"rechargeable" (and merge it in .fdi file), it is simpler to use
capabilities.d. Anyway - why lists callouts explicitly?

OK. I will think about some list of generic properties for devices
with "rechargeable" capability.
