Thanks, Martin. It even has a touch of theory in it :)

Rename "value" to "properties"? That doesn't feel right to me. I think
the larger issue (than changing "properties" to "value") is the impact
on early adopters of discarding the "EPSG", "OGC", and "URL" types in
draft version 5. We've been instructing GeoJSON processors to switch on
the value of "type", not on the value of "properties".
