Hi Kyle,

thanks for the review.

My assumption was that one could put in two properties (that's what
the OP was doing in his setup file): a GENRE_ALL one already properly
set-up and the corresponding bare GENRE property as a placeholder with
an empty value, just to get the completion. It seems to me like a
reasonable way to do it, without making org-buffer-property-keys too

I could see stripping all the _ALL suffixes from the property names
at the end, but personally it just makes me a bit queasy :) But if
there is consensus one way or the other, I'd be happy to implement it.

Here's the updated patch:
