Ok, I'll buy that.  But in that case, I'd say that the definition
that Steve and I came up with also uses properties.  I'd also say
that these form a necessary and sufficient definition, while your
properties, IMHO, creep into things that aren't necessary for a
definition, though they may certainly be considered requirements on
an architecture for supporting them.

Is that clearer?
