Looks ok to me. Once you use this new property, please also provide me
with a clear definition of what it does for the canonical documentation

If you can't clearly define what your property should mean for all
interfaces (i.e. if it only makes sense to set it for effects, and for
nothing else), then you might want to give it a more specific name, such
as "VisibleEffect" or something like that.
