Subject: adding property sets in style sheet

New property sets can be defined for use in DSSSL style sheets, as
specified by the DSSSL IS and the HyTime 2nd edition, and as done by
HyTime for some of its properties.  Such property set definitions
specify things like property names, grouping of properties, and
sometimes an enumerated list of possible property values, and so on.
This allows one to use the DSSSL node-property function more or less
as follows:

(node-property '{new-property} ({node}))

A DSSSL engine needs to know how to determine what (node-property)
returns when such new properties, as defined by additional property
sets, are used.  My question is: how can one write DSSSL functions for
such properties?  How can a library of such DSSSL functions be
included so that when the node-property function is run these new
properties are properly processed?
