Legacy Issue Number: 2636
Summary: by using bind_context/rebind_context/bind_new_context versus those
that are bound by using other means?
If an application uses resolve() to lookup a naming context, it has no
way of telling whether the naming context has the binding type
n_context. In fact, it doesn"t care. So an application choosing to do
piecewise resolution against CosNaming would see a different behavior
than if it were to do whole resolution. This seems to contradict the
subsection "Resolution of Compound Names" in Section 4.2, page 4-8. It
seems that n_context is an implementation issue of CosNaming that is
exposed to the application.
The suggestion is to remove the third paragraph of the Usage section,
or to change it so that n_context be set for any naming context bound
in the namespace.

Clarify role of when naming_contexts participate in name resolution, make text consistent with Usage
