Sorry, I don't understand what you are after. Perhaps you can give a use 
case for how the "value of a property" is used? At a rough guess, though, 
isn't what you are after really the definition of the property itself? 
i.e., TEL means that its value is a telephone number, as specified by the 
property definition.
