i always thought clearish variables should work in the following way:

if a variable had the same value as the one on its parent, it would be
considered clear, and not stored in the database.

if a variable had a different value than the one on the parent, it would
be considered non-clear and be stored.

if a variable on the parent is changed, it would automatically be
inherited by all the clear variables, that is the ones that had the
same value as the old one.
