This is correct.  You can't specify the offset from another match
(that'd be somewhat hairy to implement due to the nature of the way the
plugins are called).  

If you have two content checks with no offset or depth specifiers to go
with them, both content checks are applied to the full payload.

You can add "offset" and "depth" specifications after "content" (but before the next "content") to modify that behavior.  I don't think you can specify the offset as relative to the previous content match, though that might be nice.
