Some XMI exporters do not explicitly specify the owner of an element using the appropriate XMI element (e.g., a link from an operation back to the class to which it belongs). Instead, ownership is implied: the owner is the parent element in the XMI tree. Therefore, when the trigger(s) for attribute "context" retrieve no information for a model element, SDMetrics inserts the parent element in the XMI tree as the owner of the element.
