It would be too glib to ask what the difference is :>
More seriously, there are certainly some properties
that are more important or fundamental than others.
Of course, some objects are defined by conjunctions
(eg solutions to <ref a differential equation> satisfying
<ref some initial conditions>).  There may not be
(currently) in DLMF a satisfyingly focused single URL
for such a thing. [The point being that an eventual
DeFMP needs to capture these conjunctions.]
