A simple page sequence has no applicable font characteristics, such as
font family name. Still, when I specify it, jade makes a call to
setFontFamilyName, and at least the TeX backend picks it up and
jadetex then applies it to all children. Is this the correct

Generally, is every specification of an inherited characteristic
valid, regardless of whether it is applicable to the FO for which it
is specified, and should it be applied to the children for which it is
relevant? This would make every FO act as a sequence FO. Or should
such specifications be ignored?
