No there isn't.

I had overlooked the fact that you wanted the property to be effective
across back-ends. So, it would define how the entry should appear in the
table of contents in every back-end where it makes sense.

That's a bit of work, because, so far, node-property values are not
parsed. So it would require to define a new class of node-properties:
those with a parsed value. But then, how to decide which properties have
their value parsed are parsed and which have not?
