Hi Prakash,

of course multiple scopes give additional possibilites. But we should keep
DASL lightweight. Do you have a usecase for multiple scopes?

I was hoping you could elaborate on your anwser. Even in a tree, the 
combination of scope and depth vs. multiple scopes are not equivalent.

Currently I don't see a need for multiple scopes.
