"There are many places in the CR document where "within" means all descendants,
not just children. "

If N is a node, then yes, we regard all the descendants of the node as being
within the tree rooted at that node.

But if S is a sequence, then I think the natural meaning of "items within S" is
the items that are members of the sequence, not their children or descendants. 

However, we shouldn't rely on readers guessing this so I don't mind tightening
it up.
