Wouldn't it be simpler to parse under the assumption that any
property could potentially be plural and ignore all but the first
instance as makes sense in a given context? I suspect predefining
these within formats will unnecessarily restrict use in rare
instances that could not all be considered in advance. For example,
we might assume birthday is a singular property, but some cultures
celebrate multiple birthdays (e.g. lunar vs. Gregorian calendar).
Making such assumptions could easily make formats less useful.
