I'm not sure what the problem is with using the same name.  The 
zindex.html chapter in CSS 2.1 defines how CSS boxes are rendered and 
how stacking contexts influence that, but it doesn't define which things 
cause stacking contexts to exist.  (That's defined by individual 
properties.)  We (in SVG) should define how SVG elements render, in 
render.html, with reference to stacking contexts too.
