[Mondrian] Members.properties("CAPTION")

As per http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms145528.aspx
CAPTION property is same as MEMBER_CAPTION.

In MSAS 2000 
<Member>.Properties("CAPTION") works
<Member>.Properties("MEMBER_CAPTION") fails

In SSAS 2005
<Member>.Properties("CAPTION") works
<Member>.Properties("MEMBER_CAPTION") works

In Mondrian 
<Member>.Properties("CAPTION") works from revision 9066
<Member>.Properties("MEMBER_CAPTION") works

Implementation issues:
CAPTION property is defined as non member property, so we are using 
MEMBER_CAPTION when lookup is for CAPTION.

What does the spec say? What does MSAS do? I'm fine changing it as long
as we are consistent.
By the way, I think you mean <Member>.Properties("CAPTION").
<Dimension>.Members returns a set of members, which of course does not
have a caption property.

CAPTION property has been kept as internal property, but this needs to
behave same as MEMBER_CAPTION. 
Any reason why we shouldn't expose CAPTION?
