request addition of pop-up alert for sublocale inheritance

Hi - I just tested the sublocale inheritance feature on the smoketest site. It's great, but I think it would be enhanced by the addition of a pop-up alert that would appear the first time in any session that a given user votes to inherit a value from the parent locale. The alert could call the user's attention to the fact that the selected value will be inherited and that future changes to the parent locale will be automatically applied to the sublocale. It could also instruct the user to create a new entry for the same value if automatic inheritance of future changes is not desired. It should also have a checkbox that can be deselected if the user wants to hide these alerts for future votes during the current session. Without this alert it's easy to overlook the significance of the blue box, and the indication of inheritance is only visible when the details are viewed, and is also easy to miss. Adding this alert would ensure notification without creating an undue burden for the user. Thanks for considering my feedback.
