I suspect it's deliberate , (or possibly a mistake!) In one way it makes a lot of sense, if you are using custom properties m, then you are taking control of the situation, and adding your own function to apply the custom properties is just another step up in this control you are exercising. In other words, you're not relying on the built-in functionality of the form ...

Sorry, I don't buy into that at all, or your prior statements about "abusing" OpenArgs or it being less clear or somehow not being able to separate the values. We just have different opinions on the matter, I guess.

Sometimes I just roll my eyes out loud...
