The difference between "actual" and "used" may not be easily
accessible, I think.  I believe engines might fold those calculations
together; I could be wrong, though.

I like the idea of being able to explicitly request the inherited,
initial, or default value (presumably, "default" would act as if it
was specified at the author origin).
