I guess I'd have to disagree that there's no sense in allowing
inheritance of properties on validators and converters.  The original
goal of the ValidatorBase class was to provide a message properties to
all subclasses.

Why would you extend a validator or converter if you weren't planning
on using the same properties of the parent?
