> i created a test in order to make sure builtin-nodetypes.xml and builtin-nodetypes.cnd
provide the same definitions (actually i only wanted to test my own changes).
> it reveals that the existing built-in NodeTypeDefinitions are not equal due to the following
> - in the xml-format nt:base is always specified if no other super type extends from nt:base
> - in the cnd notation the nt:base is omitted (see below for quote from appendix of jsr
283) even if other super type(s) are
>   defined and none of them extends from nt:base.
> this affects the following nodetypes (all extending from mix:referenceable only):
> nt:versionHistory
> nt:version
> nt:frozenNode
> nt:resource
> quote from public-review of jsr 283:
> " Supertypes [...]
> After the node type name comes the optional list of supertypes. If this element is not
present and the node type is not a mixin (see Options), then a supertype of nt:base
is assumed."
> I'm not totally sure, if according to the quote above the built-in cnd-definitions are
valid at all. since it states, that the nt:base is assumed if no other super type is defined.
In the case of the node types above, mix:referenceable is defined to be the only super type,
which is not totally true... the non-mixin types are always sub types of nt:base.
> In either case: From my understanding the node types resulting from parsing the xml and
the cnd file should be equal.
> If the definitions are valid, we may need to adjust the CompactNodeTypeDefReader.
