> What for?

Just to help catching errors. I'm a functional programming fan, I like
inmutable objects.

(let ((global (make-display-table))
      (local (make-display-table)))
  (set-char-table-parent local global)
  (aset global ?0 [?< ?0 ?>])
  (aset local ?1 [?< ?1 ?>])
  (setq standard-display-table global)
  (setq buffer-display-table local)
  (insert "01"))

=> 0<1>

That is, local's parent is global, but once local is set as
buffer-local display table, global's contents is irrelevant when
viewing the buffer. That limits the usefulness of display tables. Or
am I missing something?

Closing this since it does not seem to be a bug.
