I am interested by this too. I tried to have inherited properties and 
had the same problem whereas I fixed org-use-property-inheritance 
to 't. 

I test that inheritance work with the following test :

* Inheritance
#+BEGIN: propview  :cols (ITEM test) :scope tree 
:conds ((string= test "appear")) 
| "ITEM"        | "test"   |
| "First level" | "appear" |
|               |          |

#+BEGIN: propview :cols (ITEM CATEGORY) :scope tree 
:conds ((string= CATEGORY "level")) 
| "ITEM"               | "CATEGORY" |
| "First level"        | "level"    |
| "Test inheritance 1" | "level"    |
| "Test inheritance 2" | "level"    |
|                      |            |

** First level
  :test:     appear
  :CATEGORY:  level
  :COLUMNS:  %34ITEM %plats %ingredient
*** Test inheritance 1
    (org-entry-get (point) "test" t)
**** Test inheritance 2
     (org-entry-get (point) "test" t)
** Second level
*** Test inheritance 3
    (org-entry-get (point) "test" t)

I expect to have the same behavior for CATEGORY and test properties.
If you evaluate lisp expression you will notice that inheritance seems 
to works.
