William, I think you bring up a very good point. My "definition" of the limit of a sequence of subspaces is ill-defined. In fact, I don't even have a definition for X-X_n, and am not sure a good way to define the norm ||Y|| of a subspace Y.
Maybe that is why some authors use the uncountable union of subset condition in their definition of MRAs in wavelet analysis.
Thank you very much, I appreciate your help Dan
