I raised this issue on March 20th, 2002 [1]. Original text is,

"[Comment C] "the label is said to be locally scoped, .. globally scoped" -
this is something new. Do we need this to describe encoding? Also,
terminology bullet 1 in section 3.1 says that,

".. label of the outbound edge alone is sufficient to uniquely identify the
outbound edge .." - well, I don't believe that it is unique enough.

..

[Comment D] Section 3.1.3, rule 2, says that .. if the edge is globally
scoped (??), the non-URI part of the edge label is the local name (see A
Mapping Application Defined Name to ..)

Appendix A addresses both prefix and local name. In other words, it
addresses both URI part and local name and not just local name."

Also, why do we need this distinction, locally or globally scoped?
