I'd be quite happy if 1.8 had inherited properties and the actual
server-directed configuration goodies happened in 1.9, if that got 1.8
released a couple months sooner.

Of the two initial config options, I think default auto-props are more
likely to be immediately useful to users than inherited ignores -- i.e.,
I'm aware of users asking for the former, but not that much for the latter.

Mostly docs and cleanup, IIRC.

Very safe. I personally think it's more likely to happen in 1.10 than
1.9, unless someone steps up and takes a swing at this.
