Make a new namespace for properties - something suitable, I don't know
what. Then publish it public description, explain versioning, explain
usages. Define properties and give good explanations on how they are
used.

People would be stupid not to follow a well-made specification for
these properties. And there's no reason to have it in the 'svn'
namespace.
