I think you assume too much. That is one possible model for ACL
implementation, but even that would differ significantly from
inheritable properties in that you have to be able to modify ACLs on
historical revisions (e.g., lock most people out from everything older
than r1524 in path /foo/bar because it contains sensitive information).

The trouble with inheritable properties is that I can't think of an
efficient way to implement them without fiddling with the FS schema. Not
saying ideas wouldn't be welcome, of course. Personally, though, they're
not high on my list for 1.1.
