Well, keep in mind that :inherit provides dynamic _defaults_ -- if
face-B specifies any of its own attributes, then they'll override the
inherited attributes (or modify them, in the case of relative values).

So if you define face-B as above, and the user customizes it, he can can
make it look however he wants, with anything he doesn't change being
inherited from face-A.
