BTW, I think I understand what the "property" or "compile-time associative
container" object should be called, now: I think it is a "tagged tuple". And
I think it would be best implemented as a tuple of tagged_value<T> objects:

template <class Tag, class Value>
struct tagged_value
    typedef Tag tag;
    typedef Value value_type;

    tagged_value(const Value& v) : value(v) {}
    value_type value;
