This whole thing looks so obviously as a PTS issue to me that I don't
see why anyone should spend any effort on anything else than raising an
errata for the PTS.

As far as what you're suggesting as a potential workaround it still
wouldn't guarantee that the PTS would start giving an authentication
requirement other than no-bonding. We can only control our own
authentication requirement.

Furthermore, you couldn't have this as general RFCOMM server behavior
since there are servers for which no-bonding may be desirable, like OPP,
and clients might not be tested to handle rejecting our general bonding
request properly if they were designed to assume they can get by with
their initial no-bonding request.
