Note that global rules have to be able to overrule scoped ones, 
otherwise you have lost the key requirement of the cascade that the 
consumer has ultimate authority.

(One thing that concerns me about the whole use case is that it is based 
on embedding what are really separete resources, for reasons that have 
to do with ensuring that advertisements are seen, not to do with the 
natural structure of the information.  However the want to meet 
commercial constraints is so endemic these days, that I don't think I'd 
win such an argument amongst implementors.  The real solution would be 
to make object work!)

Emails are not formal business letters, whatever businesses may want.
RFC1855 says there should be an address here, but, in a world of spam,
that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
