2 weeks. I could have waited one month, but this is relatively safe
breaking change.

Sorry if I was not clear in my original message.

1. STYLE will _not_ be inherited by default after the proposed change.
2. HABIT will be inherited if user customized
   `org-use-property-inheritance' to value of t (aka inherit all properties)
3. STYLE will be inherited if user explicitly added "STYLE" to
   `org-use-property-inheritance' when it is a list.

Only (2) can be breaking.

To be able to dedicate a separate subtree or file to habits,
automatically making all the sub-tasks habits without spamming property
drawers setting :STYLE: habit.
