One crucial difference: default ACLs on a directory are copied onto newly created objects in the directory, but don't affect preexisting objects. In Windows, my understanding is that children just reference the inheritable ACLs on their parents, so a change to an inheritable ACL on a parent (or any ancestor) immediately affects the child.
