As I understand it, Inventory.Item.Global is a way to designate what 
resources should have the Redfish health rollup from their children.

Inventory Items like Chassis or System would be good candidates for this 
Inventory.Item.Global interface. An example is a Redfish Chassis with 
Health Rollup from children resources like power supplies and fans.
