Format modifiers

The CONFIG-DATA object is a set of Address=Value pairs where the Address field is a single-byte value expressed in hexadecimal.

By default, the Value field is expected to be in hexadecimal too.

To ease the human readibility of the JSON dataset, a Modifier may be appended to the Address field to instruct the receiver that the Value field is actually not expressed in hexadecimal.

Syntax is Address.Modifier=Value, i.e."Address.Modifier": "Value".
