Actually, re-reading that section I think I misunderstood the meaning. If
only the direct parent of a <style scoped> is considered a contextual
reference element for rules in _that_ style-sheet (rather than an element
being a contextual reference element for _some_ scoped stylesheet), there is
no ambiguity.

So please disregard my ramblings.
