One more suggestion which you can follow or not:

Show the code for at least one complete implementation of property map, no
matter how practically non-useful or simple it may be, based on your
concepts in a clear manner. Then someone trying to understand your concept
will understand what practical use your idea may have for their own

Thanks !
