Search for a child element that contains the property. We already
do this for interfaces, and properties are just mini-interfaces.
(Arguably, release-device should probably be an interface, but let's
not discuss that right now. Maybe even merge it with the
property-probe interface into a resource-management interface...
but wait, I wasn't going to discuss it now.)

Presumably, if the property doesn't exist, it's not necessary.
