WAC does refer to interfaces defined in one module from another module;
however, we have not been using scoped names for these references - we use
the unqualified interface name. More or less every WAC module does this.

However, I did notice that the Webinos draft APIs [1] are referencing
foreign interfaces using scoped names, and I think Dom has been active in
that work - perhaps he can comment?
