I think that it would really help to introduce a notion of
'user scope' or 'observer scope', being a set of topics.

You would then be able to apply set theory more formaly. For example
you then can say that

 'and association is valid in the user context U if the association's
scoping topic set S is a subset of U'

or whatever the final interpretation will be.
