gml:CompositeSolid implements ISO 19107 GM_CompositeSolid (see ISO 19107:2003, 6.6.7) as specified in D.2.3.6. 
A gml:CompositeSolid is represented by a set of orientable surfaces. It is a geometry type with all the geometric properties of a (primitive) solid. Essentially, a composite solid is a collection of solids that join in pairs on common boundary surfaces and which, when considered as a whole, form a single solid. 
solidMember references or contains one solid in the composite solid. The solids are contiguous.
