This seems to imply that they apply to all media types, overriding
the media attribute on link elements or media list on @import rules.

I think it would be better to define all the places that specify
media lists or queries as having their sheet (for <link> or @import)
or rules (for @media) skipped if the media list/query does not match
(and then not saying anything about rules outside @media, etc.).
This makes it clear that the media lists/queries operate by
intersection.
