Yep. Noted.

So the 'applies to all' statement on the property is false?

Some contradiction?

Max? Anyone else from the working group listening?
Arbitration please.

No statement in the rec gives priority to either the listed
properties for an element or the applicable elements for the 
property, hence they have equal standing.
