I was probably a little over zealous there in my edits. I 'm sure we will 
need to document a couple of 'exceptions', such as this one, where variables 
do need a cross-file context. The server doesn't check variable names etc. 
within the file which is why it relies upon the contributor making an 
assessment about the level of compliance of their contribution.
