The point is there are contributed widgets that test with a context
":zle:name-of-widget:some-other-stuff".  I haven't looked to see
if you're likely to encounter them in what you're doing, but it's
easy to be sure you're not going to fall foul of that.

It's possible word-style is never looked up like that --- but it's
a good habit just to be careful.

The point was actually to try *not* to need a long discussion about
behaviour :-).
