Scope of :hover

Is :hover supposed to apply to any element that a pointer is over,
or is it supposed to apply only to elements that can be activated
that the  pointer is over, or is this a decision left to user agents?  
I've gotten into a discussion about this and citing the relevant 
section of the standards:

CSS3 Selectors:

has not caused either of us to change our positions as we agree 
differently. (I do so like that Yogiism.)
