You are right :-)

^Xh gives me:

tags in context :completion::complete:ssh::
    argument-1 options  (_arguments _ssh)
tags in context :completion::complete:ssh:argument-1:
    hosts users  (_alternative _ssh) 
    hosts        (_hosts _combination _ssh_hosts _alternative _ssh) 
    hosts        (_ssh_hosts    _alternative    _ssh    _normal) 
    users        (_users _combination _ssh_users _alternative _ssh)

tags in context :completion::complete:::
    all-files  (_files _default)
tags in context :completion::complete:ssh::
    argument-rest options  (_arguments _ssh _ssh)

The files generated after ^X? differ pretty much, but both mention _ssh.
I put them here:


 If you're not confused, you're not trying hard enough.
