TypoScript is entirely based on inheriting settings from pages higher up 
in the tree and from included templates.
You can however use a condition to only have properties set for a 
certain page:

[page|uid = nn]
my.setting = something

In old versions of TYPO3 it stopped the rendering of the page tree after 
that page and added a red [+] sign. If you clicked that the page with 
the [+] would be loaded as a temporary root.
With the introduction of the ExtJS pagetree this doesn't work anymore; 
it does however still work in the element browser popup (when you select 
a page/record/file to link to).
The option is not removed because we will replace the ExtJS pagetree 
with something even better and this option could then work again.
