Depends who you ask ;) It would be good to be able to enforce the policy but 
there will always be people who want to do something else. ie I think most 
people agree that immutable properties are better but some people have 
requested mutability of properties. If were to enforce the immutability in 
core they could not get around that when they think we are wrong ;)
