      "This module defines a YANG extension statement that can be used
to incorporate data models defined in other YANG modules in a
module.  It also defines operational state data that specify the
overall structure of the data model.

The key words 'MUST', 'MUST NOT', 'REQUIRED', 'SHALL', 'SHALL
'MAY', and 'OPTIONAL' in this document are to be interpreted as
described in BCP 14 (RFC 2119) (RFC 8174) when, and only when,
they appear in all capitals, as shown here.

The 'mount-point' statement MUST NOT be used in a YANG
version 1 module, neither explicitly nor via a 'uses'
The 'mount-point' statement MAY be present as a substatement
of 'container' and 'list' and MUST NOT be present elsewhere.

given 'container' or 'list' statement.

If a mount point is defined within a grouping, its label is
bound to the module where the grouping is used.

A mount point defines a place in the node hierarchy where
other data models may be attached.  A server that implements a
module with a mount point populates the
'/schema-mounts/mount-point' list with detailed information on
which data models are mounted at each mount point.

data node.";

XPath expressions whose context nodes are defined in
the mounted schema, the union of all these node-sets
