Bad to hang properties off keywords to install their semantics

			[...] it takes a long time each time you use that
    keyword for the function to scan down the keyword's property list
    looking for the one item that tells this particular function what to
    do while ignoring all the other properties that are used by other
    functions. [...]

This seems like an implementation issue and has little to do with
what the language standard should be.
