Is there a way to specify a variable for the element name, but set it's
type, say, to string so that any element created under <element_properties>
could be called anything but follow predetermined validation ?

Beyond that, I will stick to the normal <property name="x" value="y"/>
technique with validtion which isn't really a problem, but the other
would/could be useful !?
