How would that work? Suppose {le ka ke'a prenu} = "being a person" is
an essential property, and {le ka ke'a klama le zarci} = "going to
the store" is an ephemeral one. How does {ka} help?

I know! Let's use subscripts: {ka xi pa} for essentials, and {ka xi no}
for ephemerals, and of course you can have all the fuzzy range in
between.  :)
