Umm. My point was that if  having processed the XTM document with a
<mergeMap> caused any of the topics in the "mother" topic map to
merge, then there would be *no* way to unmerge them. You could of
course get rid of the topic characteristics (except the subject
identifiers and subject locators) that came from the topic map that
was merged-in, but you cannot repair any of the damage that happened
to the topics in the "mother" topicmap.
