I don't see an easy solution. The problem is that
\property Foo.Bar = baz
is really a music expression, while
Bar = baz
is an entirely different beast. Perhaps we can try to live with the
way these properties are done for now (i.e. very verbosely), and see
if it becomes a real problem in the long run?
