We intend to deprecate and remove usage of human-readable names for Bluetooth assigned numbers. Deprecation is targeted for M95.

Motivation

The Web Bluetooth specification has provided human-readable names for Bluetooth assigned numbers to increase readability for developers using standardized GATT services, characteristics, and descriptors. However, given the long-term maintenance burden it introduces and the lack of clear support from the Bluetooth SIG, we want to deprecate them and add clear warnings that while the existing entries will NOT be removed, no new entries will be added, and developers should use literal UUID constants instead as cross-vendor support for these aliases will be unreliable.
