Nested CSS classes are missing in the inherited skin



When a child skin inherits from the parent skin containing some formats, nested CSS classes are not generated. 

For example, 

Consider two skins: Skin A (parent) and Skin B (child)

If a new tab format 'toptabs' is created in Skin A. It creates some nested CSS classes such as .screen-layout-header > .dc-screen-layout-region-main-middle-tab.dc-toptabs-tabs along with regular CSS classes such as .toptabs, toptabs .tab-ul.
