No, I think it does make sense. Something like

    get field "foo" of stack "bar"

means "get the contents of field 'foo' on the current card of stack 
'bar'" - the "current card" part is understood when making references 
to a stack. I think it works the same here - "get the ID of control 2 
of this stack" would mean "control 2 of the current card", etc.

The real problem here is that you can't get a list of all the groups 
in a stack any more since backgroundBehavior was introduced. But 
that's a rant for another day....
