The bluez tool `bdaddr` could be added into `bluez-utils`. It is a part of upstream source and already build by the `bluez` split package. This tool is needed to develop with devices that connect only to fixed bluetooth device address. So it fits into the category "Development and debugging utilities for the bluetooth protocol stack".
