you can follow the commentary of section 10.11.1 of ACI 318-05 where
it is allowed to increase the property modifiers given in section
10.11.1 with a factor of 1.43 for serviceability checks of wind and
earthquake loads.

Generally you should see the degree of cracking in the member which
will help you to select the property reduction factor. I think for
RC structures, there will not be much effect generally.

Now suppose we are doing a spectrum analysis for a RC structure. To
consider cracking of sections we must use property modifiers given
in section 10.11.1, while for calculating periods of vibretions, we
must increase property modifiers with a 1.43 factor. So it seems the
software must be capable of considerring two sets of property
modifiers, one for p-delta analysis and one for period calculations.
But in the current versions only one set of property modifiers can
be introduced for software. Do you think we can find a solution to
overcome this limitation?

I think presently there is no other alternative to run the program twice with different modifiers.
But I think we may reach to one modifiers both for design and serviceability with our judgement regarding cracking phenominon of the structure under lateral loads, but for every structure this might not be possible.
