Hmm.  I agree this is a useful thing to do, but perhaps it's better 
accomplished by not prepending ":scope " to selectors which have a 
:scope in the first sequence of simple selectors in addition to ones 
that have :root there?

This would still not make "foo .bar" match if the scope is a foo, but 
would we actually want to match?
