The transmission of the teachings of some details here is ascribed to specific heritage – a direct line of passage down from one to the next, without always mentioning all the people along the way. Also, the question of the source for the ritual impurity issues – is it a point of heritage, a transmitted halakhah? Or is it something that can be concluded logically?
