I think the right way to add access to all consumer properties is to specify it through a single --property command line parameter that takes in "key1=value1,key2=value2,..." list. That will make sure we don't have to keep changing console consumer as well add/remove config options on the consumer. Some configs make sense to be top level for console consumer though. Things like topic, from-beginning, groupid etc. Rest can be specified through the "property" parameter.
