Looking at this a policy question, I could agree that this is a
case where people will disagree, and hence where flexible
designs are appropriate. Though clearly the folk who don't
like flexibility will object!
If there are only two policies to support, I like these two; as
well as the easy-to-understand metaphor.
But aren't there issues like "how far do you bubble down"?
Normally I'll think that certain nodes in a given document will
be natural spots to bubble down to, even if some decls could
get bubbled down even further.
