How can authors express interest when most of them don't read specs 
and had never heard of this? Authors keep requesting nesting & 
scoping, just because they are not advocating this particular solution
 doesn't mean it's not a big problem for them.

 not sure you always want to do that.

Intuitively this seems true, but can you think of any use cases where 
you don't want to do that? Theming is the only one I can think of…
