I assume "property" is in there to allow things like

        ko'a jarco lo ka virnu kei tai lo nu jivna le traji be fo roda
        He shows his courage by taking on the world champion.

I don't think this is _entirely_ malglico, although you may be able
to suggest a better way of doing it.

I believe you yourself coined the elegant

        ro cimni ka satci cu se jdima lo cimni ni valsi

(I think the original had {lo} where I've put {ro}, but this
is more accurate pe'i.)

If a property can have a price, it can be expensive.

We obviously disagree on some (more) of these, so I'll return
to them later.
