Issue Description:

Using Davide De Franceschi's example, the issue is exhibited by this code:

class A {
    static let superA = "a"
    func foo() {
        // Doesn't compile
        _ = superA
        // Compiles
        _ = A.superA
    class Inner {
        func foo() {
            // Compiles
            _ = superA

While we need do qualify static class members in the (dynamic) class itself, it does not seem to be required in inner classes. Since the arguments for forbidding unqualified access apply just as well there, this seems like an oversight.
