Imagine you have a 10000 items agenda file, and you produce a 100
items agenda view.  Your method would slow down checking 10000 items
to display properties for 100 items, while my method would slow down
the display of the 100 already available items.  So its about 100x
faster.

Please check both methods and let us know what performance you
observe.

My objection is about the method.

Thanks for this -- but as I said, there are performance issues and
design issues (not introducing formatting properties within
org-scan-tags.)  

Best,
