What are transitive attributes?

Please explain what transitive attributes are, and in which scenario we should use them.
A transitive attribute is really an "attribute of an attribute" or a "second level attribute". For example, an InfoProvider has an InfoObject and a CostCenter, which has a navigational attribute of a CompanyCode, which in turn has its own attribute of the company. Transitive attributes are defined as display attributes. The company is the transitive attribute that you could make a navigational attribute.
