Hi Allen,

I don't know if this is helpful, but Mark's strawman seemed to make this much simpler, perhaps it might make for a less intrusive specification to define that this should behave as if it is an accessor property following Mark's ProtoGetter/ProtoSetter descriptions, whilst leaving how the property is reflected ambiguous?  I think this should amount to the same thing, just might be easier to encapsulate this way?
