If anything, I'd prefer <... tp:requestable="yes" tp:immutable="yes"/>.
So far we've just been using fairly consistent text ("this property is
immutable" or "change notification is via the ThingChanged signal").

One advantage of always having text like that is that it will hopefully remind
people that they should explicitly say what the change notification is, which
might in turn remind them to implement change notification at all :-)
