I think much of the user's confusion can be avoided if the Stylist
didn't show the flat All Styles view initially, but the Hierarchical
view instead. This immediately gives a hint that styles depend on other
styles, even if the user has no idea of inheritance concepts.

If the Organizer tab for derived styles then instead of the simple
"Contains" would say "Contains not in parent style" or "Items different
from parent style" or some such, things would be much clearer.
