Hi,

I agree that the text needs clarification.  However, I propose this
text instead:

  The derived-from-or-self() function returns "true" if any node in the
  argument "nodes" is a node of type "identityref" or a type derived
  from "identityref", and its value is an identity that is equal to or
  derived from (see Section 7.18.2) the identity "identity"; 
  otherwise, it returns "false".

Typical example is in ietf-netconf-nmda, where "when 'derived-from-or-self(datastore, "ds:operational")';" is used, but the "datastore" node is of type "datastore-ref" defined in ietf-datastores module, which is in-turn derived from "identityref"
