I gave several examples of scoped selectors other than <style scoped>,
such as querySelector/queryScopedSelector and jQuery.  Roland provides
the further example of manually-done "scoping" via prefixing with a
selector for the "scope root".

Unfortunately, I don't know what to say.  I thought I explained it
quite clearly.  There are two possible models of scoping.  Both have
strengths and weaknesses.  One is more intuitive, so we'd like to make
<style scoped> use it.  I'm proposing @global to address the weakness
of that scoping model.
