I'm not sure what you mean by that. It's drafted as part of the HTML 5  
proposal and as far as I know it hasn't been implemented yet. (scope= was  
also part of HTML4, but apparently AT vendors never used it?)

I don't think we're looking for use cases but actual usage. How much  
content would break if the new algorithm was used and headers= was not  
taken into account.
