      Why stop there? Why even need to type in <inheritdoc /> everywhere? If no new XML documentation has been written for the overriding function, then just show the XML-comments from the base-function. You could just use the <remarks> tag to sort of add on information to the overriding function, should there be any. And if you absolutely HAVE to write a new summary, then just do that, and then the XML-comments from the base function will NOT be inherited.

      How is this not the way? How is there not one person, who has written a simple plugin to do this? Not even Resharper does this. If I had time to get into making plugins for VS, this would be my first.
