yes, I know, and it's great and awesome, but there might also be the case
where you don't really want to have any properties at all, cause it's just
a simple abstraction. I have a couple of such examples in my library. And I
think it would be worse to come up with dummy properties just for the sake
of having properties, just because you're not allowed to not have
properties. In other words, it can also be limiting to force it to have
properties.

cheers
