By the way, I think this example, along with variations where the <link>
property is replaced by <threading> or other properties, expresses
exactly the problem I am raising.

Also, another thing I am extremely confused about is which properties
propagate downward into dependent targets. I assume that this is
documented somewhere, and I would be very grateful if you could say
where. (I find it difficult to find anything in the documentation. I
don't know what it is, but I am unable to discern any logical structure
to the documentation whatsoever.)

Please understand. I think BBv2 is the greatest, but there are still
aspects of it that I find rather frustrating.
