Yes, opening up to more than the iCloud attribute is something to think
about, and using the actual name would make this a little more
future-friendly, I think.

OTOH, we have to map the value they send to a C value [1], so we really
CAN'T leave it open ended, unless maybe it turns out that in practice the
only values ever used are uint32's or some such.
