XML op-mode generation scripts silently discard XML nodes
Open, Requires assessmentPublicBUG

Description

Consider those two XML definitions:

both "generate" the file /opt/vyatta/share/vyatta-op/templates/show/protocols/node.def bot it is not populated with the help string from show-protocols-bfd.xml but rather is a simply, empty placeholder to entertain the vyatta-cfg backend.

I expect that on such a "conflict" two XML files generate the same node, the one which has populated the help string wins. Right now the only way to solve this is to copy the same <help> node to every file which is in the path of this node generation (bad).
