Feedback request: getProp/setProp and lockMessages

I agree with the concept that the world of set and getProp messages lives almost entirely in scripts, not embedded in the underlying "engine". Being therefore "hand-made", they should rightly be grouped, as Mark W. asserts, and as Richard so clearly explains, with its kindred "send", et. al.

Yes, please.  Two thumbs up. +10

In my projects, I've been using a combination of custom properties and functions 
to get around the locked messages limitation, so this change would be a welcome
