It may work for "PARENTS[-1]" but it can not be generalized:

  The DTML namespace is essentially a stack of mappings.
  The "with" tag with the "only" attribute starts a new
  stack and pushes the object onto this new stack.
  Inside the "with", you will only see attributes of
  the object itself *or* attributes that the object
  acquired. This "or" is the problem.

  Acquisition and namespace stacking are orthogonal.
  You strip the namespace stacking with the "only"
  attribute (of the "with" tag), you strip the acquisition context with
  the "aq_base" attribute (of the object).
