I don't think it disallows them, and sorry I mean to say property names.

In my tests, if the property value is an integer or a float, then the property
is shown by the Java drain example properly so long as the name is UTF-8

However, if the property value is a regular string, which is then VBIN
encoded, then Java doesn't see the property at all; i.e., it says there
are no properties even though one was provided.
