Just to clarify.  Are you saying that if two residual child node definitions
are inherited from supertypes, then it's undefined which one get's applied?
 Undefined in the specification, correct?

And, here, you are referring me to see the actual jackrabbit implementation
so I can peruse the logic myself, correct?  Thanks.  This is precisely what
I need.

At this point, I'm fairly certain that I witnessed erratic behavior in
Jackrabbit's evaluation of which rule to apply . . . I don't want to file a
super vague ticket for this, as I know that vague tickets are annoying -- I
see plenty of them myself, but I may not get time to investigate further . .
. what do you recommend, should I file a ticket just so it's on record, or

Yes, I did something like this already.  I defined my own "unstructured"
type and let my types inherit from that, thus taking all SNS out of the
inheritance hierarchy.
