The Subject Location Uniqueness Objective may demand that built-in nodes be merged
Applications, to achieve the Subject Location Uniqueness Objective may require that built-in nodes be merged
Let's reserve "demand" for what syntactic features with inherent topic map information are with respect to nodes.

The Subject Location Uniqueness Objective may demand that built-in nodes be merged, but the effect of merging their built-in values cannot be determined by the situation features of the node that results from their merger. Therefore, TM Applications must define rules for combining the built-in values of built-in nodes.
The TM Application must define what the standard says it must define. Argument about why something is required is inappropriate here.
