For dimmable lights, being able to set min and max % in light settings

It would be handy to be able to specify minimum and maximum brightness as a percentage in the light/entity settings, so dimmer sliders will only function to those limits.

Eg: if you set minimum to 15%, when you slide the dimmer all the way to 0%, it will actually only dim the light to 15%, preventing any low power flicker.

Some light hardware supports setting a minimum dim threshold. Otherwise, an option is to create an automation that detects if a light enters a state of being “too dim” and reacts by increasing brightness to a minimum level, as discussed in this thread.
