A variant proposal: on each schema.org/SomeType page, annotate each
property with a star icon if it's popular (used on, say, >25% of hosts
marking up that type in the wild), as well as a "new" icon if it's recently
added (so that authors don't ignore the newly added properties just because
they're not popular yet). This way the annotations are completely automatic
and external to the schema, and won't need to debated by the community each
time a new property is added.
