I had a similar problem a while ago and I think I resorted to modifying the
dictionaries and copying AVP definitions. The only other way I can think of
is to move all the common AVPs into a separate dictionary and inherit from
that in both your Rx and Gx dictionaries. I haven't tried this approach but
it could work.
