If I understand you correctly, the answer would be "yes".  I.e., you
don't need to specify border, etc., on every fo:inline.

I hope you've already solved this by now, but have you tried 1pt of
padding on the fo:inline with the first "text2"?  See the figure at [1]
to see how padding is "inside" the borders.
