A recent UDN brought up two scenarios with dependent actors in RepGraph that could use better comments/warnings.
The first is that calling ForceNetUpdate on an actor that is only replicated as a dependent of another actor will have no effect, as only calling ForceNetUpdate on the parent will cause the dependent to replicate.
The second is that if an actor is added as a dependent to a parent actor that has not yet been routed into the RepGraph (and the dependent actor is not routed into any other nodes), this dependent actor will not replicate.
