So this happens in message.c in
int pn_message_encode(pn_message_t *msg, char *bytes, size_t *size)


   err = pn_data_fill(msg->data, "DL[CzSSSCssttSIS]", PROPERTIES,

so basically it looks like it populates *all* standard PROPERTIES even 
if they aren't *explicitly* set.

I commented that based on what I was seeing it looked like 
qpid::messaging wasn't using Proton's message code 'cause 
qpid::messaging only seems to be sending properties that have been 
explicitly set.

It's probably worth aiming for consistency, but TBH I'm an awful lot 
more concerned that Proton Messenger doesn't seem to have a mechanism 
for setting link configuration and thus I couldn't use it for most of my 
more interesting examples, which was a shame.

Nobody has yet confirmed nor refuted whether this observation is 
correct. I'd like to know for sure and if that stuff isn't supported I'd 
love to know what the intentions are.
