I'm not sure we want that style attribute feature at all (and I
wasn't thinking about it earlier in this thread).

But if we do, I'd want the text to be red, because the scope of the
<style scoped> is inside the scope of the style attribute.

In other words, I'd want the style attribute's cascading rules to be
defined in terms of scope.
