It's a node that references external model files.  The files will be loaded asynchronously 
via DatabasePager once the proxy node becomes visible.

Since the proxy node cannot know the position/dimension of the model it references you 
have to specify those manually.

I don't think it's ever unloaded.

Hope this helps,
