    This may be a semantic argument, but just for clarification...

    In SQL Server, scope refers to a securable that contains others securables. Server, Database, and Schema are all scopes. So the database scope contains all of these. I'm not sure it's appropriate to say all of these are examples with database scope. That'd be like when a baseball is in a glove saying that the baseball is an example with glove scope.
