no local.{behavior,exceptions}, which still would allow behavior
propagation, but simply wouldn't keep local behavior or exceptions.
a change in behavior on parent would simply reset the child to parent's
state. exception propagation would mean inserting/removing the new
exception and making sure the others are still valid.
