My two cents - NO - no writable properties at all - no state changing methods
defined in any Phase 2 modelling activity - drop this property entirely or show
it as a read-only boolean in CIM_Printer.

Actually, I would propose calling the class ConsoleButtons or ConsoleInput. The existing function does not disable the lights or text display, only input from the buttons.

Console. Not ConsoleLights or ConsoleDisplayBuffer, but a class with no properties other than state so that it can be enabled and disabled. In the voting spreadsheet from eons ago, we all voted prtGeneralConsoleDisable as priority A. And there is a comment on it that says, "must be implemented as CIM state accessible by RequestStateChange() method." Who would have guessed that we had such foresight way back then.
Proposal: When we get to it, we can use this as a pipe cleaner for CIM modeling of this writable property. I think it results in an otherwise empty class derived directly from EnabledLogicalElement. No new properties, just the state properties and RequestStateChange() method inherited from the parent.
