The 1.0 version of the Bluetooth Mesh Profile specification is built for
4.0 or newer Bluetooth versions, and as such any later features are not
part of it. That said, there are some benefits you get with HCI-based
stacks using Bluetooth 5.0 controllers, such as a lowered minimum
advertising interval (20ms in 5.0 compared to 100ms in earlier
versions).
