That is not accurate and not what Paul said.  For starters,
"allowed-height-scale", "allowed-width-scale", and "auto-restore" are
all inherited properties that would list before "azimuth".

Section 5.1.4, "Inheritance" [1], includes:

   The inheritable properties can be placed on any formatting
   object. The inheritable properties are propagated down the formatting
   object tree from a parent to each child.

There's also the 'from-nearest-specified-value()' function [2]:

   The value returned is that for the closest ancestor of the formatting
   object for which the expression is evaluated on which there is an
   assignment of the property in the XML result tree in the fo

Just allow any property anywhere except on empty FOs other than
fo:table-column, which gets its applicable properties and all
inheritable properties.

The challenge for a schema or validator is probably more in handling
what FO can't contain itself or what FO can't be a descendant of what.

The challenge for an authoring environment is presenting the plethora of
properties in a way that's useful, e.g., directly applicable first, then
other inheritable, then the rest, but getting the list is all too easy.
