I write for 6x9 trade paperback format. I write with four-abreast pages on a 24" monitor, mostly 11pt type. I make four pages fit by cutting the left and right margins to 0.1 inches, zoomed to 4-column, book mode. Really nice, BTW.
I use chapter first, left and right pages, TOC first, left and right pages and a handful of other page styles for front and back matter.
With inheritance it would be a simple matter of changing 'default page' from it's 4.2" working width to its finished 6" width. Without inheritance I have to individually style my ten or so pages styles.
I'll be able to switch easily from draft format to finished format (and back again).
Happy camper author!

Looking for'd to getting a 4K monitor and viewing three rows of 8 pages each. For me that's a full chapter at a time!
Such inheritance for page styles is currently not supported by the file format. LibreOffice could introduce such feature in its own namespace.
The request already exists, see bug 41316.
