What is not-obvious / confusing is that the *_pass items are not inherited... but their associated directives from the same module are.

I'm fine with that. I've been using nginx for 10 years now (!) and have a huge library of macros that are included into various blocks dozens of times.

Right now I'm trying to open-source something I wrote to handle lets-encrypt certificate management behind nginx.

For simplicity, I wanted to make a very concise nested block for the documents. When there are many header variables that need to be set, the docs can get hard for people to follow.
