It should stay as not implemented until it is at least read properly (reads
the value into the correct data type) and is used at least somewhere. If
you only found it on Block then that is probably the only place that it
applies (directly).

To understand what it should do you therefore need to read the information
about the property, read about the block element and other places that you
may need to look at are the other space handling properties.

Then the foproperties.xml should be adjusted to read handle the correct
values. Next it needs to be read in Block and handled there.

That should get you started at least.
