I have use getprop and setprop.

I suppose one could have a student palette of objects with special scripts or behaviors that grows, but then the question is whether they should be weaned from this or learn how to use raw objects from the start.

Every time a new non-global property or synonym is added, we run into a backward compatibility problem.  Sometimes it is worth it.
