Suppose there are a couple nested groups with controls, a background
with some controls and some controls not in any group on a card.
The path for controls in the nested groups looks like this:
... control --> inner group --> outer group --> card --> stack ...
The path for controls in the background group looks like this:
... control --> background group --> card --> stack ...
But, the path for controls _not_ in any group looks like this:
... control --> card --> background group --> stack ...
Note that the background group is in the path after the card for
controls not in any group.
(Now, I would have hoped that this would have applied to the first
controls, above, too. Unfortunately, this means my field grouped with
up-down buttons does not behave the same as my field. I can't think of
a grouped control as a control.)
