I think what people usually do is to write a post-revprop-change hook
that sends an email (or updates an RSS feed or whatever) so that
developers are informed about changes, so that on the off chance that
a mistake is made, it can be corrected. I think creating a new
revision as a result of modifying a property on a previous revision
kind of defeats the purpose, or at the least is odd.
