+Some values in the catalog need special treatment. So we will have a central property for the catalog, and a number of special properties. An entry like Lang can be added to the catalog property, but e.g ViewerPreferences needs a special property, and the general prop should only contain the indirect reference to the dict obj. Probably a number of tests are needed to prevent users to write into the wrong prop.
+ \item Collection: unclear
+ \item OCProperties: (unclear) Possible that more than one package wants to add something. Then it must be done in the sub dicts OCGs and Configs and would need management.
+ \item AcroForm: (unclear) It looks as if only one can win here. Compare what the packages do and if overwriting is a problem. 
+ \item Metadata: (unclear) Only one can win here, so we need to sort out, how to create and fill the stream. 
+ \item PageMode, Uri, Lang: (direct write) 
+ \item ViewerPreferences: needs its own property that can be filled by packages. At the end it should then be added by us to the catalog. 
+ \item OutputIntents: needs it own property, as more than one intent can be added. The \enquote{ID} of an intent is the value of OutputCondition, so there should be a way to test it.
