The problem is that the cascade has no effect on properties specified
on different elements.  You'd have to make up some new magic
surrounding this, such that the property on the grid items percolates
up to the grid cell, with the specificity it would have originally
had, and then cascades as if it was specified there.

That's potentially doable.  It doesn't have any particular problems,
at least, if you just specify that grid-cells defer to their superior
parent's value when they don't have an explicit value set for

This is weirder if you do this behavior properly by just setting
'display' on the grid cells.
