Blocks tags inside inclusion template tags are ignored

Currently, inclusion_tag templates cannot overwrite blocks in the parent template. The {% block %} tags are simply ignored and the text inside is printed as is.
Is this a design decision or a technical limitation?

This could be very useful for say specifying a CSS stylesheet related to the html generated by the inclusion tag by appending links to the extracss block in base.html.

Sounds like templates working as intended. A specific example would go a long way to prove your point.

I have a need for this...

I built an app that sets the meta tags on a page. Id like to be able to dynamically overwrite the {% block title %} I set in an inclusion tag

Again - This doesn't sound like an error to me -- it sounds like blocks working as designed. The fact that you'd like it to work a different way doesn't change the fundamental design of the template language.

If you'd like advice on how to achieve something, I suggest asking on django-users.
