XML-Data inheritance is different from the sense of "inheritance" in
"inherited attributes".  An element A inherits from another element B iff:

	1) it is said to do so;
	2) every attribute in B exists also in A, and with a compatible
		attribute type;
	3) the required content of B is a subset of the required
		content of A.
