RE: Re: proposal for sanity check at propset time

No, inherit isn't the proper term here. The more appropriate term is
default property values. Each container would have a set of default
properties that each new item (i.e. add, and nothing else) in the
container would receive upon creation. That's not inheritance. That's
defaulting.
