Yep. Once we have this in place, that'd be a great place to store the

Are you suggesting that we mirror the existing generic PROPS= mechanism for
these few inheritable CSS-like properties? Off the cuff, that's fine with

When I originally did the property propagation, I didn't encapsulate that
lookup logic because there just weren't that many instances. If it's gotten
