I would hazard to say that the 'initial' keyword is probably sufficient.  
To cancel out inheritence of every single property at once would probably 
yield some rather strange results.  Maybe not.  I get the impression that 
in practice if you need to set more than two or three properties to 
initial, you're probably not writing very good stylesheets.
