Actually, what I'd like to see as a requirement is more modest than this.
I simply propose that there should be the possibility of explicitly
recording a property name, which need not have any global significance.
The property could be expressed in many ways, but for the sake of an
example I suggest that we might possibly have a DELTA character that
looked like this:
#2. body <@property degree of convexity>/
1. strongly flattened/
2. slightly flattened to moderately convex/
3. strongly convex/
