For me, bold and alert are 2 different beasts. Some beamer styles even display
them differently (different colors, for example). Better would be not to mix

Whether in org-mode or in org-beamer-mode, when typing `e' on the second
column, it opens the tag selection interface in the minibuffer. But, here,
what I'm trying to add is a property, not a tag...?
