Indeed. Nobody is questioning the utility. Personally, I still find 
"method property" to be the best name since it doesn't presume whether 
the property has an impact on code or not. A primitive can be a method 
property that represents code, a pragma can be a property that 
represents a compiler instruction, an annotation can be a property that 
is used for discovery.
