      Agreed that mixing context declarations within a library can be confusing, but rather than being prescriptive about usage, suggest the following:

      Best practice is for each library to have expressions in only one context, and for that context declaration to be the first declaration in the library.

      Description

      From the given sentense I see that every declaration belongs to a context. I understand that it may seem umbiguous to have the context as a part of each declaration and thus it was decided to declare it separately, but for large specifications this will significantly reduce the readability.

      So I would suggest making the context an explicit part of each declaration.

      Existing Wording:

      Because context is associated with each declaration, it is possible for expressions defined in a particular context to reference expressions defined in the Unfiltered context and vice versa.
