Project properties: inheritance vs. copying

Hi folks,

I am a bit confused about the concept of project properties in TSVN. The following two excerpts from the manual seem to contradict each other:

Source: http://tortoisesvn.net/docs/release/TortoiseSVN_en/tsvn-dug-propertypage.html

First: project properties are inherited

> [...] project properties must be set on folders for the system to work. When you commit a file or folder the properties are read from that folder. If the properties are not found there, TortoiseSVN will search upwards through the folder tree to find them [...]

Second: project properties are copied to new folders

> When you add new sub-folders using TortoiseSVN, any project properties present in the parent folder will automatically be added to the new child folder too.

Why would I want to have the project properties copied if I can rely on inheritance? I find that it makes project maintenance more difficult.

Is there a rationale behind the copying function?
