I have tried to implement it and found that I could not because of the 
ambiguity so consider my previous comment about that as feedback on the 

If not for the ambiguity it would actually be trivial for me to 
implement it because I already have scoped CSS in a proprietary markup 
language. Unfortunately, I cannot add support for this until it is a 
standard as there is too high a risk (certainly while the ambiguity 
exists) that the standard will change incompatibly.

Is there anyway that I can help to expedite this to at least becoming a 
CR? Given that it is a very simple specification I would be quite happy 
to update the draft along the lines I discussed, including update 
references and dependencies as appropriate, I would of course need a 
little guidance. I would also provide one implementation.
