Perhaps -- I don't know whether it was intended that a graph might have
vertex properties but not edge properties. No algorithms appear to use
either of the concept checks.

Yes, I think so.

No -- the documentation should be updated.

Yes. You may also need to be careful to avoid a problem like the one in (I don't know how LEDA
properties work).
