Ok, I used the wrong wording : it should be "a VSC defined in a parent 
sitemap has a label that triggers a view inherited from a sitemap 
ancestor of the one where the VSC is declared."

More concretely, considering the sample webapp, this can be the 
"pretty-content" view defined in the root sitemap.xmap, triggered by a 
virtual transformer defined in samples/sitemap.xmap having the "content" 
label, itself being used by a pipeline e.g. in samples/i18n/sitemap.xmap

I don't have a strong opinion about this, but tend to agree with you.
