OK - let's move away from the programming in org and back to my question:

Looking at my example, it seems that the variable
org-use-property-inheritance has no impact on the header arguments,
i.e. no properties are inherited. So it seems that there is a bug, or a
severe misunderstanding on my side what property inheritance means.

From the help of the variable:

| When nil, only the properties directly given in the current entry count.
| When t, every property is inherited.  The value may also be a list of
| properties that should have inheritance, or a regular expression matching
| properties that should be inherited.

Reading this, and the fact that I get the same properties irrespective
if I set org-use-property-inheritance to t or nil, I would assume that
there is something not correct or consistent.
