A Problem in Nature Of XFEM Approximation

There is a basic problem in NATURE of approximation of discontinuity in element using XFEM.I tried to illustrate that below:
for example, If you consider an element with strong discontinuity( like fracture or contact) which usually we use heaviside function as enrichment function. we expect two parts of element deform independently because of nature of problem.

In equation for approximation of this element we have two main parts. First  is 'regular' or 'standard' part which uses the standard shape functions of element and Second is the enriched part.
