Yesterday I exported a set of properties as 'fred' and when I tried to
import that same file there was an error message about wrong file
format OSLT which I put down to lack of extension. But I can't
reproduce this now (with the same version).

OK, that's a valid way of doing it, although it has to be done one at a time.

Another thing which occurs to me is that it would be good to be able
to see the properties in the import file before applying them,
otherwise you are doing it blindly, hoping you picked the right file.
That would mean another dialog which looks almost exactly the same as
the main property list, and that would be a good place to have a
recursive checkbox/button. I know ... more work :-(
