I think it would be convenient if we can assign them from the command line.
Right now we have -Dvm. -Xem. -Djit. -Dgc. set of properties.
You propose to emphasize them with -X prefix, so we have -XDvm. -XDem. and
-XDgc. as the result.
Your approach is better because the namespaces are separated. It's safer and
we remove potential problems when a property with the same name appears in
user's code.
The old approach is better because it's do the same using less entities.
