This is incorrect. What I mean is inheritance is not automatic for
special properties, unlike to regular node properties.

In any case, this doesn't depend on `org-use-property-inheritance'. Few
of the special properties are inherited, e.g., BLOCKED, and /always/
are, most are never inherited, e.g. ITEM.

We need to redefine `org-default-prority' to solve this, e.g., the
variable only applies to top-level items.
