Probably not.

 IMO there is no such difference between properties and child properties.

A child property is just a property of a container's child, such as it's
alignment or whether it should expand, I think. I'm sure they are
useful, if we can find a nice API for it. But it might not be necessary
to use the generic property API. Maybe all the functions do what we need
already. I don't know.
