Can't point you to a specific message, or say for sure if this was the
only thinking, but one thing about letting them be set at the target-level
instead of only at the project-level is that it allows for the flexibility
of what the property(s) actually gets set to, based on whether the target
that sets it is run. I wouldn't be in favor of seeing this go away, unless
the whole mutability aspect changes as well.
