Fair enough.  Perhaps I was too quick to respond with too little
knowledge of the actual function being documented.  My guess had
been that the issue was to describe attribute inheritance.  If
that is indeed the case then "relative to" is at best unfamiliar

Backing off and focusing only on terminology for describing
definitions, I find "in terms of", "as a function of" or "based
on" all easier to swallow than "defined relative to".
