I am afraid it is not possible for the reasons Philip has already mentioned.
As long as we use these properties in the on-disk format, we cannot alter
their names without breaking compatibility.

Unfortunately, I am unaware of a solution that would allow us to stop checking
these properties against a predefined list of names. Even with theoretically
possible options like using a special namespace in the newer filesystem formats
or making these filesystems use something else than a set of temporary props
for the transaction flags, we'd still require this check somewhere in order to
be backward compatible.
