Mh, that is true, it makes the whole thing much more complicated. Maybe it would empower the users enough if it would be covered in a documentation how to edit and swap mtPropertyMap.properties files?

Not if people that designed frameworks for a RPG system came up with a standardized method of naming properties and the content of the properties. i.e. Armor Class would be called ac.torso.deflection and contains a JSON with the following data... With this, you could write the mapping file and it would work no matter what framework. Also, tokens would be interchangeable between frameworks. Yes, I know this is pie in the sky thinking.
