Fonts make it diff. to read your pic,
but I presume that in this illustration
X is under A. In which case,
Answer is No.
X might, however, have a left-hand neighbor Y,
in which case it's inside Y.
In other words, the connection to A is accidental
(but allowed)-- philosophy is that all connections are allowed unless
However, your illustration doesn't indicate whether X is connected
rightward to B1, which would definitely *not be allowed*,
as it violates the standard containment concept.
We're allowing a more principled way of doing that by
letting *clones* be contained elsewhere.
It's all interpretation, of course, and the problem is to find
the most productive and consistent set of of premises.
Please ask more like this one.
