Those didn't really work on older Nexus phones either (you could disable things like hsxpa, but anything above 2 was ignored because it was meaningless). and were removed from build.prop with Android 2.3. I used to screw around with hsxpa on my Nexus One in the 2.1/2.2 days because T-Mo was having problems with its HSUPA deployment in my area. Setting HSxPA to 1 would disable HSUPA but keep HSDPA going. Setting HSxPA to 0 would limit you to UMTS.
The HSDPA/USUPA categories are limited to hardware. Setting it higher than what your phone can support won't do anything for you, and may result in reduced performance. You could certainly set it lower, since HSPA is backwards compatible, but why would you do that?
