> @LeaVerou I’m not totally opposed to reference different levels with something like `&1` or `&2`, but I submit that this results in a tighter coupling – whenever you change the nesting these references might break silently.

Oh that's a good point, we don't want that.

I wonder then if it should be explicit: You'd declare a name for the `&` in the ancestor scope that would allow you to reference it in descendants and how.

E.g. something like:

.foo {
	scope-name: bar;

	& .bar {
		&bar:focus .baz {
