Adding this feature would be difficult.

When the value of the Global Property is changed by a Toolbar button or
trait, an actual value withing Vassal is updated with the new value and
all items that are 'listening' to that value are updated. A Calculated
Property does not have a specific value, it is recalculated afresh every
time it is referenced. This makes it extremely difficult to implement a
Global Calculated property.

Also, a Global property would not be able to to reference any values
within a counter, so I am not sure how useful it would be.
