[O] indirect buffer for properties

Hi all

What do you think about an indirect buffer for properties (or is there
already one I don't know of yet?) that lets one view and maybe even
edit all properties of the typically folded current heading of the
primary buffer in an indirect buffer? It could be named "properties
editor", defuned org-properties-to-indirect-buffer and work like
org-tree-to-indirect-buffer (C-c C-x b) with the additional feature of
changing the scope to the properties of the current heading when
moving in the primary buffer, just like the field content of the new
org-table-follow-field-mode for the "table field editor" introduced

An Org file:

#+begin_src org
  ,* section
  ,** [#B] subsection
  ,   :prop:     short
  ,   :property_with_long_key: property_with_long_value
  ,   :END:

opened in the state org-content and with point at "subsection" could
show the indirect buffer for properties like this:

/ * section                                         /
/ ** [#B] subsection...                             /
/                                                   /
/------ (the primary Org buffer) -------------------/
/ :PRIORITY: B                                      /
/ :prop:     short                                  /
/ :property_with_long_key: property_with_long_value /
/                                                   /
/------ (the indirect buffer for properties) -------/

Of course there are TAB on ":PROPERTIES:..." and column view but
wouldn't this be very helpful at least for fast browsing of properties
for use cases with longer properties or with a larger amount of
properties in a single heading?
