Pretty much. Or at least have a way of doing that. But I do think this
should have a way of coexisting with the standard properties where
that's possible.

My main concern here is that going through too much of an abstraction
layer looks like it could be an awful lot more work and I'm not entirely
clear what it'd buy us - things like readback debug decode into user
readable values are an example of a useful thing, though.
