Actually the definition of how the repetition model works is such that you 
don't have to walk anything more than the parent chain of the repetition 
template, and that applies to all UAs. So I don't see why implementing 
this in IE would be any harder than anywhere else, at least not in so far 
as the global attribute goes.
