Why?  It would only be looked up when the property is found in more
than 1 place which should be the exception rather than the rule.
And the lookup shouldn't be much worse than the default-text-properties
lookup (or the lookup inside the list of properties of a given overlay or
of a given text-prop-interval).

Or do you mean the `append' itself ?
