Peter, thank you for your comments. The Working Group considered
your message at its recent Face to Face meeting.

There seem to us to be three separate questions:
(1) Editorial changes

Noted with thanks!

(2) Re: Might it be possible to provide for direct inheritance of
    traits?

Traits do not inherit.

(3) Re: What if a subset of traits were defined to inherit directly from
    properties on their area's controlling simple-page-master?

You can't inherit from both places. The Working Group has tried this
approach in the past, and it is an area we might need to explore in
order to do layout-driven formatting, but it is not a change we are
prepared to make for 1.1.

Thank you,

Liam, on behalf of the XSL Working Group FO subgroup.
