The parent file means the file that has the docbook declaration at the
top, like:

<!DOCTYPE book PUBLIC "-//OASIS//DTD DocBook XML V4.2/EN"
"http://www.oasis-open.org/docbook/xml/4.2/docbookx.dtd"; [

The reason it says parent, is that, like the Documentation guide, you can
split up a huge doc into smaller section/chapters to be managed better,
but there is only one parent with the above declaration in it.

It would be ok, but we do not not what delcaration it uses or how it tags
pu some things.

It for uniform editing basically.
