+1, either that or allow properties to get their value from a datatype:

<property name="myPath">
  <path > <!-- no ID needed since I provided a name -->
   <pathelement .../>

The only advantage here, is that we get a more consistent look to the
whole thing. As far as I remember IDs and property names lived in the
same name space. Is that still the case?
