Sorry, I don't get this. Even the simpliest form of comparison
contradicts it. In psuedo, something like :

if(structure a or structure b) then structure x

So, the wording should be *may* and the conditions Amy Lewis pointed out
must be met. In short I think it's fair to say that, as long as
predicate data isn't lost in translation there may exist a translation
from where the result-tree matches the original source-tree.
