Some bridge attributes or more accurately bridge port attributes overlap with port attributes.
IFLA_BRPORT_LEARNING from IFLA_PROTINFO  and BRIDGE_VLAN_INFO_PVID flag of IFLA_BRIDGE_VLAN_INFO from IFLA_AF_SPEC are two examples where bridge port properties might have to be mapped to a common or driver specific port attribute. 
Switch port driver that works without and explicit bridge device has to implement the bridge NDO's ndo_bridge_setlink/ndo_bridge_dellink.
It could take care of mapping such attributes from the bridge netlink message to either driver-specific port attribute of to an explicit one (assuming IFLA_ATTR_LEARNING would be accepted).
For example the driver could process the bridge learning information from the protinfo as such:

int sw_driver_br_setlink(struct net_device *dev, struct nlmsghdr *nlh)
{
        struct nlattr *protinfo;
        protinfo = nlmsg_find_attr(nlh, sizeof(struct ifinfomsg),
                                   IFLA_PROTINFO);
        if (protinfo) {
                struct nlattr *attr;
                attr = nla_find_nested(protinfo, IFLA_BRPORT_LEARNING);
                if (attr) {
                        if (nla_len(attr) >= sizeof(u8)) {
                                if (nla_get_u8(attr))
                                        brport_flags |= BR_LEARNING;
                                else
                                        brport_flags &= ~BR_LEARNING;
                        }
                }
                /*
                 * Map bridge port attributes to driver-specific port attributes
                 */
        }
        return 0;
}
