Does this restriction make sense?  It seems to me the spec is second 
guessing why people would want style scoped.  What technical reasons are 
there for not allowing it anywhere?  Technology is often used 
surprisingly so I would be reluctant to overly restrict something unless 
there is strong technical reason to do so.

There is no justification of this restriction in the spec that I can see 
[1].  I'll look through the WHATWG list archives.
