#' Class XiMpLe.validity
#'
#' Used for objects that describe valid child nodes and attributes of XiMpLe.nodes.
#' 
#' You should use \code{\link[XiMpLe:XMLValidity]{XMLValidity}} to create objects of this class.
#'
#' @slot children Named list of vectors or XiMpLe.validity objects. The element name defines the parent node
#'    name and each character string a valid child node name. If a value is in turn of class XiMpLe.validity,
#'    this object will be used for recursive validation of deeper nodes.
#' @slot attrs Named list of character vectors. The element name defines the parent node name and each character
#'    string a valid attribute name.
#' @slot allChildren Character vector, names of globally valid child nodes for all nodes, if any.
#' @slot allAttrs Character vector, names of globally valid attributes for all nodes, if any.
#' @slot empty Character vector, names of nodes that must be empty nodes (i.e., no closing tag), if any.
#' @slot ignore Character vector, names of nodes that should be ignored, if any.
