I want the syntax to reflect what Lily is doing inside. If you can

Ideally, the user shouldn't need to know anything about the structure
of the implementation. If we need the separation, we also have to be
able to explain it in a way that's obvious to a person who has never
done any programming.

Also, one problem from the users side, even when you have realized the
difference between translator properties and backend properties,
is that it's not always obvious if a certain feature belongs to the
translator or to the backend, when you start searching for a property.
I notice that the direct overlap between the two cathegories has
decreased since 2.0.0 (where e.g. the translator property
tupletInvisible directly translated into two backen properties), but
the border line is still a bit fuzzy.
