The only problem with using :: is a syntactic ambiguity:

I'm not wedded to the :: digraph, I prefer the concept. :: was nice because it re-used a similar concept from C++. No other digraph jumps out at me. Some other possibilities (I don't care for any of these):
Global Nested ------ ------ :>variable scope:>variable *>variable scope*>variable ->variable scope->variable ?>variable scope?>variable &>variable scope&>variable
Or perhaps variations using <.
