(1) I don't see any reason that they need to be, since setting the
physical properties is enough to set everything to 'inherit' or
'initial'.

(2) If they are, then you have to answer the questions about which
order they come in.  The OM aspects of that are a bit unpleasant;
depending on how 'inherit' is defined for logical properties, the
inheritance aspects might be worse (although I hope the logical
aspect gets resolved first, and inheritance after).

There are probably arguments on the other side too, though.
