I should just clarify that I actually like "property group".

The only reason that I've been discussing looking for something else
is that Manu doesn't like it. But just because I'm happy to go with an
alternative term, doesn't mean that I don't like my original term. ;)

(The fact that a 'property group' is simply a 'group of properties',
all bound to a single subject, makes this about the simplest term I
can think of to explain the concept we're dealing with.)
