Flip a coin. One could make either argument about the root of the
problem. The bigger question is, if you code to prevent the bogus
property from being set, what will happen when you access a repository
via HTTP which already had those bogus properties set? You've stopped
people from setting them in the future, which is fine - but you still
have to handle the scenario where someone accesses the ones that were
previously set.
