Converting dynamic properties into static ones is a good idea, because
it simplifies reasoning about properties.  I'm afraid it'll be a rather
tedious job, and only at its end we'll be able to see what dynamic
properties remain.

Making -object blind to dynamic properties is a restriction unless these
properties are of no use there.  We can't know that now.  If we get
there and know, we'll have to protect that state somehow.
