You're right, doubleclick is missing on the property pane.

This isn't acceptable like this, because it introduces different 
behaviour between clicking on a "properties" item and a tree item. Both 
must behave identically. Actually, not only double click is missing, but 
also right mouse click.

> Rationale for different behavior with tables/views:

This is reasonable, but before that some prerequisites have to be met:
- the default action should be visible to the user, preferrably 
displayed bold in the context menu.
- the default action might differ from user to user. For sure, an 
unconditional "View Data" on a table is a bad idea. I already hear those 
guys yelling double clicking on a 100 million row table...
