ITS is applied to the *source* document, without pertending knowing anything
about how the documents are merged/split/reorganized to form a final document.

This is a limitation that comes with any type of compound-document system, not
just DITA. But there is not much we can do about it. Anyone can create document
from bit and pieces of other documents using various methods: there are no way
we could forsee all cases.

Re-usability has many advantages, but it has also drawbacks.
