Because inheritance is based on the formatting object tree, not on any
semantics of the formatting objects. Formatting object traits are derived
during the refinement of the formatting object tree.
The semantics of the formatting objects govern the creation of the area
tree *after* the traits have been inherited by the properties, so by then
the start-indent has already been interpreted as a trait of the descendents
of the table.
I hope this helps.
