Many such properties are registered with RegisterPropertyToSkip. If you know 
more properties which are not yet registered, please add a 
RegisterPropertyToSkip call for them. (You have write access to lcl, I don't).

The properties are ignored by form loader but they are currently also removed 
by the converter.

Do LCL controls have many properties that don't exist in Delphi VCL?
I think a common subset of properties must be used then.
