ClipNode exists to provide a mechanism for the OSG's cull traversal to
record the modelview matrix which to apply ClipPlane associated with
that ClipNode.  ClipPlanes have to applied with a specific modelview
matrix in OpenGL which is what makes it "positional state".
osg::LightSource + osg::Light work, TexGenNode and osg::TexGen  in a
similar way as they both require a specific modelview matrix.

See the osgclip example to see ClipNode in action.
