This happens when you have an object that's contained in more than one
place, but the container features declare that they're required (not
optional, lower bound 1). So no matter where you contain the object, it
will be invalid, because the other container feature will be null. So
change the lower bounds for both container features to 0.
Note you can ignore this error too. The wizard still produces a
*.genmodel and when you open it, you can turn to the Generator tab and
still use the model.
