To provide scoping for children.
<scope w="100%"> <row h="18"> <textbox text="Hello, world"/> </row> <row h="8"> <textbox text="Goodbye, world"/> </row> </scope>
If you have a number of nodes that share common attribute values, but don't have a common parent, provide them with a no-op parent that allows consolidation of attribute specification.
In the above example, the two textbox nodes will inherit the W attribute from the scope tag.
