Default build.prop tweaks: Which ones are myths?

ro.ril.hsdpa.category=24
ro.ril.hsupa.category=6
ro.ril.hsxpa=4
ro.ril.fast.dormancy.rule=2
ro.ril.radio.svn=19

I've been using this build.prop tweak on the HTC One S ever since I found it in the CM 10.2 thread in the development section a while back. I have to wonder though, does this really do anything? I read something recently about many build.prop tweaks merely being a sort of placebo effect, and I was wondering if this and other build.prop tweaks cited in this forum fall into that category.

Thoughts?

Without the following additions/changes, I was suffering from frequent data connection drops:

Code:
ro.ril.hsdpa.category = 24
ro.ril.hsupa.category = 6
ro.ril.hsxpa = 4
ro.ril.radio.svn=19
ro.ril.fast.dormancy.rule = 0
After making those changes I no longer lose my data connection (or at least not frequently/long enough to notice). I think it was the "ro.ril.fast.dormancy.rule = 0" setting that fixed the issue, but I don't recall now. Te be honest, I'd just assume not muck about now that it works for me.

BTW, I am on TMOUS.
