Wondering whether we can get away by saying roughly:

"Whenever a schema document S=source is overridden by O=override, then any
<include> or <import> to S are as if they were to O, unless the <include> or
<import> was meant for a namespace different from that of O (think chameleon
include/override). If S is overridden by multiple documents, then use any one
of them as O."

This way:
- It's still at the syntax level, so the rule is deterministic. (We had
difficulties specifying redefinition rules at the component level.)
- It helps solve many more use cases than the current rule, in particular, if A
includes B, B can still be overridden. (The pervasiveness.) (The current rule
will most likely make this case invalid.)
