See http://www.w3.org/TR/sXBL/#the-xblshadowtreeelement where it says 
"the method shall only search through the shadowTree element and its 
descendants". That's for the method part, I don't recall where/if there 
is a description of shadow scoping of IDs. If it's not there there 
should be something.
