Re: standard usage of O(x^3) can be confusing

The scope of a declare is its surrounding math element -- not
the entire document.

It seems clear that being able to extend the scope to the entire
document is helpful from a notational point of view, but this
issue of larger scopes is one that is not unique to math, or
declares and the working group has pulled back from a
unilateral and possibly conflicting proposal on  the issue.
Also, there are numerous implementation issues that surface.
