If accessors are defined by the developer who designs a property behavior then I do not see them as keywords. Or am I wrong?

That is why I would prefer them lowerCamelCase.

> I agree with your believe that we should treat these just like user-defined accessors.  So lets assume we had an “observed” behavior that had didset/willset aspects that can be specified.  To the implementor of the behavior, these are terms that they define, but to users of the behavior, they are indistinguishable from keywords.
