Yes I think we should flag an error just to make sure the user understands
this AT is present and available thanks to an ancestor OC.  If anything it
shows the user to be more aware while dealing with schema design.

In general if there is any anomaly I would take the policy of rejection even
if it is recoverable or not an issue.  If there is even the slightest smell
of something not being right with the schema or the awareness of the schema
designer we should take the stance of caution.

BTW it would be nice to be able to tell the user, 'hey guy this AT is
already in the MAY/MUST list thanks to ancestor foo'.
