Although I've never looked into it, can't you already have it with a
custom PropertyHelper?  If you can ensure that your custom property
helper is the last one that gets called - and that it never gets
called for know properties - you should be there.

Provide this property helper and maybe add a new command line switch
as syntactic sugar, done.
