properties and inheritance

It seems that properties, as implemented in 2.3, don't behave as I'd expect
with respect to inheritance:
class A (object):
doF = property (fget=f)
b = B()
b.doF : prints "A"
Is there a rationale for this? I would have thought that if properties are
a shorthand for calling functions, and functions are polymorphic, then why
are properties not? Doesn't that make properties behaviour inconsistent
with other attributes?
