No, it's guaranteeing future compatibility, because by using a  
property you ensure that you can later on replace the setter with a  
procedure if necessary, without breaking existing source code (at  
least in FPC 2.3.1; FPC 2.2.x misses several checks, allowing you to  
do all sorts of things with properties directly mapped to fields that  
should not be possible).
