I just found this interesting article

http://gemma.apple.com/documentation/Cocoa/Conceptual/ObjectiveC/ Articles/chapter_5_section_5.html#//apple_ref/doc/uid/TP30001163- CH17-SW6

which states that properties and KVC are "orthogonal" and that
property acessors using the dot notation is calling getter/setter
methods and NOT setValue:forKey(Path):

That's supposedly for performance purposes - apparently there are people who care that the KVC mechanism is too slow.
