I am 100% okay with ua-default being "incorrect" in author-level style
sheets.  In practice, it *is* correct 99+% of the time, and when it's
not, *the distinction doesn't matter*.  As far as the author is
concerned, the user and UA style sheets are part of the same thing -
"the styles underneath me".

We're never going to provide a value to authors that *does*
distinguish between user and UA (it would be user-hostile), so it
doesn't actually matter that this is technically pointing to the wrong
place in the origin hierarchy.
