My impression was that there was a hierarchy -- `real' properties would
always override `aliases', and `aliases' would be applied in strictly
the same order as they occurred in the appropriate alist entry.

Perhaps such a guarantee is not necessary, but I'd like to get some more
opinions on it.

If you're right that there's no hierarchy of aliases, then this is a
good point.
