Is this the proposal?

1. Bulk edit every property value grammar in CSS3 to explicitly include the inherit keyword
2. Add core phrasing that makes it clear that every property should support inherit unless explicitly specified otherwise
3. Remove 1
4. Decide what to do about CSS3 behavior of CSS2.1 properties that don't have a CSS3 module
5. Discuss which cases should disallow inherit and update specs accordingly
6. [later] Add 'initial' to the phrasing from step 2

Step 1 is optional if step 2 happens "soon".
