..sidesteps the issue entirely. If an ambiguity has been resolved then
it is no longer ambiguous. Consider the statement

"I left her behind for you."

which, absent a defining context, is neither inaccurate nor
unambiguous. Once the context has been resolved, apparently by a pack
of hungry cannibals, then the ambiguity disappears.

Actually, I think the accuracy of *this* question is implicit in its
existence: I don't think it's possible to know about (and remember all
the way to the present day) the Bonzos without being an admirer (or
fanatic, whence derives the word "fan"). :-)
