thanks that is good to know.
In that case the upper level (let's assume it is a NODE) is still all
at the same level, but the depth of the children of this might be
different from depth-1?
like this (I am skipping some levels, as just the structure is
or is it even possible to have a node with children of a single node
of different depth?
this is supposing that you want to keep that a level has a single type
(and given the api I suppose it is so).
