The purpose of this class is to provide a way for reflection code to be made aware when reflection objects originate in a context other than the default reflection context, so that operations on those objects can use that context. For example, reflection objects that originate with a CustomReflectionContext object should be compared only with reflection objects that have the same origin. For more information, see the CustomReflectionContext reference page.
