Allow me to resurrect this thread: Wouldn't it make perfect sense for children to inherit the due date of their parent (unless they have overridden it)? I agree with Bill that this is largely a question of visuals, as OF does acknowledge the inherited due date when sorting tasks by that criterion, but it is an important question nonetheless. After all, OF (rightly) displays all inherited flags. Why not be consistent and do the same with due dates?

The current implementation significantly increases the risk of missing a deadline. Sorting by due date is not enough as the date itself is a crucial piece of information. One needs to remember that the child belongs to a parent carrying a due date and then look for that parent. Too cumbersome and ad hoc, in my view.
