It's not yet clear to me whether these will be properties on
filehandles, or attributes of them (or indeed, whether there will be any
real difference between the two).

That's really up to Larry.

But, yes, I would fully expect that the global punctuation I/O control
variables will become attributes/properties/traits of individual filehandles.
