No, we're still on different pages -- the scope is determined in the
_schema_, specifically in the complex type definition, not in the
instance.  The elements explicitly, indirectly or implicitly appearing 
in the content model are the potential conflict set, _not_ extending
to element which may appear inside them as a result of _their_ content
