        Warning: invoking the setUSE() method on this node resets all other fields to their default values (except for containerField) and also releases all child nodes.

        Warning: no other operations can be performed to modify a USE node other than setting an alternate containerField value.
        Specified by:
        setUSE in class X3DConcreteNode
