Can the user create CellGroupingRules?

I tried to create my own CellGroupingRules, but Mathematica seems to ignore
them.  Is it possible for the user to create custom CellGroupingRules?  I
copied Section and Subsection style blocks, renamed the style, and changed
their grouping rules to FormalGrouping.  That didn't seem to work, but when
I changed the newly created styles back to SectionGrouping they started to
act like sections.  I assume that means I have to live what the five or so
grouping that come with Mathematica.  Is that correct?

Another thing that did not behave as expected was the inheritance of
FontSlant.  I had expected that to be the same as the containing block
unless I explicitly changed it.  That does not seem to be the case.  I
tried FontSlant->"Inherited" but that resulted in an error.  I tried it
without the quotes, and that had no effect on the fonts.  Should the
FontSlant option be inherited?
