If the decision to allow tree-scoped names to 'inherit' vs not is still an open question, then I'd like to chime in and say that I think that they should not inherit. I think names are much easier to reason about if names that don't have any explicit definition within the scope in which they're used always act as if that name is undefined, rather than having their behavior be dependent on context from outer scopes which can change if the inner scope is moved.
