And I've seen people insisting on and enforcing -property in its current 
broken state.

Plus some kind of anouncement on where we are actually _plaining_ to go 
w.r.t. -property & @property won't hurt.
Even vague statements like "we are plaining sometime soon to switch 
properties to what's outlined in DIP23 +- some amendments"
is better then sheer vacuum.
