I don't think we have ever agreed on that, but I should really check the voting history. The latest definition of IVP-of (or 
complement-of) is sufficiently precise (i.e., algorithmic) that transitivity follows, but derivation is purely asserted and as such 
there is no ground to say that it is transitive -- unless we say axiomatically that it should be.
