So, overall it's a failure to meet level A, yes. However, that has 
nothing to do with Steve's "we should not allow stuff that fails a 
normative requirement" in reference to two separate SCs? Unless you 
stipulate explicitly that the pass/fail of any SC also hinges on the 
solution actually used to achieve the pass not contravening any other SC 
of the same level...which seems pointlessly complex, because - as you 
say - it'll fail overall regardless for that level.

So, I still contend: <title> in <body> would pass 2.4.2, but fail 4.1.1.
