That is one of the approaches that I am thinking about to handle
the potential memory leaks from those properties.

I'd like to make these changes in a step wise fashion, to let each
major change get some exposure and use before moving on to the
next step. Making properties into kernel objects would impact
a lot of code.

So not in this series. But thanks for thinking about it.
