not quite. the set of property definitions of a nodetype is always a
static set and does not vary on the set of all possible properties
that can be added. i.e. it does not depend on the actual contents of a
node.
of course they might be dynamically generated by the repository
implementation and this set could be large. but afair, jsr170 does not
mention that this set can be incomplete.
