But I think it sounds a good idea to prevent users from
misusing the rule. If the properties with other attributes
want to be combined, they can be declared by a "variant".

I will mention another thing about conditional property.
It might be a bug. One time I used conditional property like this
It parses in error because of two colons in this token.
The colon sign is used very often in msvc toolset options.
Is there any way to escape the colon sign ?
