Properties and MetaNames are two different things, but they share the
same structure (a MetaEntry).  And often the term "metaname" is used
for both. That's because swish started out with just
metanames and later (I think) properties were added and made use of
the same structures and code used for metanames.

They either have the META_INDEX bit set or META_PROP bit set, not

moseley@bumby:~$ cat c
MetaNames foo
PropertyNames foo
moseley@bumby:~$ swish-e -c c -i c -v0 && swish-e -T index_metanames | grep foo
                 foo : id=10 type= 1  META_INDEX  Rank Bias=  0
                 foo : id=11 type=70  META_PROP:STRING(case:ignore) SortKeyLen: 100  *presorted*

Those are two different entries in the meta table -- ids 10 and 11.
Only properties have sorting associated with them.  AUTO metanames are
