Depending on the definition of the TM Application, it is possible that, during the course of this iterative (see parid0439 6.6) merging process, some conferred property values will be "erased" altogether, that is, that some properties that had exhibited values will no longer exhibit values. Other conferred property values may change, while still others will remain unchanged. This "assign values to properties of nodes" step (REF: parid0428 6.3) at least theoretically involves recalculating all the conferred property values of each node, so that they accurately reflect the node's present situation. However, built-in property values are never affected (see parid0245 4.7.1).
isn't this all defined elsewhere?
