Using Object for the mapping sounds reasonable.

I think the UNDEFINED property type is mostly used in contexts like
nt:unstructured, where more exact typing information is not available.
Such cases are not very applicable to the current static mapping
approach, but the "content-to-object" mapping approach I mentioned
earlier would directly benefit from such a catchall mapping.
