(Sorry for the top post.)

Domains do behave like an inheritance hierarchy with one caveat: default_domain is special. Expressions in the default_domain, or sub-domains thereof, can interoperate with expressions in other domains. So, imagine c++ inheritance where you can opt-in to inheritance from Object, but even if you don't, things that do can still play with objects in your hierarchy.

There isn't a clean analogy here. I wonder if the behavior of domains should change to make the analogy cleaner; every domain could be a sub-domain of default_domain. So everything can be combined with everything else. Very loose. Maybe too loose, I don't know. But it would be easier to explain.
