In the majority of cases, that's a very easy problem for authors to 
avoid by always putting <style scoped> as the first child of the 
element.  Since a <div> is invisible in most cases without any content 
or other styles, any change in rendering from invisible to visible 
wouldn't be any different from normal incremental rendering.
