We probably don't want it to be a function, or at least not a function accepting arbitrary property. Different properties may have different underlying storage / handling, so it could be hard if it uses arbitrary property in arbitrary property.

It might be fine to restrict it to properties with only a single numeric value, but I believe in the past we occasionally extend single-value properties into multi-values, so a general mechanism like this may not be future-proofing.
