Property anchors

I'm not sure about the rules that apply to the properties of a
file/directory in subversion:

Is a property global for a given item (file or directory), whatever the
release is, or are they stored on a per-revision basis ?

In other words, does

    svn propset aproperty avalue ./afile.c

apply to any revision of this file, or
apply to the current (or next) revision of this file ?

Is this property kept until someone explictly changes it (with
propset/propdel command), whatever the new release of this file, or is
it tied to a peculiar revision of the repository ? (that means the next
time afile.c is committed in the previous example, the property is not
visible anymore with the new version of this file)

I did not find a clear answer to this question neither in the Subversion
book nor the FAQ , but I might have missed on important point.
Please point it out so I can read more carefully the appropriate section.
