Maxim is right, this is documented, but the implicit reset is not mentioned, so I've updated the wiki to make that clear: Max

There is no "implicit reset", it's just a result of no 
inheritance.  I don't think that such a detailed explanation of 
how inheritance work is a good idea in context of error_page 
directive documentation.

If you think this often causes serious misunderstanding, you may 
want to place the detail description somewhere at, metioning various array-type 
directives which follow the same logic.

p.s. You may want to avoid posting html to the list, especially 
keeping in mind that text parts of your html messages are hardly 
readable due to no line breaks.
