Retrieve the PowerState info through the voice
Currently, on Smart Home Skills it is not possible to retrieve the PowerState info through the voice; the only information I noticed that can be retrieved seems to be the status for smart locks and the temperature/setpoint for thermostats...
The power state probably represents one of the most used interfaces for smart devices, and its status retrieval would be very useful for the user: in my opinion it's very limiting to interact by using the voice with a device without knowing if it is powered on or off.

The ToggleController has the following example: "Alexa, is oscillate on for the tower fan?"
Is this just misleading or does it also work with the more general ToggleController?

Yes, great. It would be very useful!
