Yes, that would have been more friendly, but that would have required the check being in the client rather than (or as well as) in the libraries, which did not feel like a good way to do it.

After a while, we can put the restriction on all property accesses, including "get", and then the "propedit" operation will fail at the "get" stage before opening the editor. So this is only a temporary unfriendliness.
