Subject: Issue: references to an external grammar

Kawaguchi-san raised this question long time ago.  <externalRef> 
references to start elements only and cannot reference to other named 
patterns.  Meanwhile, <include> expands all definitions in the 
referenced grammar, and may cause conflicting <define>s.
