That's an interesting approach, you probably want someone familiar with
the style system to check that having an element that is not the root act
as if it was the root of the style tree is a reasonable thing to do.

Also, to be precise, you're not actually clear about what happens to e.g.
'color', which is an inheritable property. If it doesn't inherit from
anything, what is it's value? This is not defined, because currently in
CSS every element has a parent except the root, and there is a special
exception to inheritance specifically for the root element.
