Weapon Specialization and Teaching of the Five RingsFollow

I'm wondering if the 50% cap is shared by Weapon Specialization in Champion and Teaching of Five Rings in Paragon.
Looking at a build something like:
http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0ckum.eV0zqRzG.qe0szAzco.V
I would have about 49.3% increase to all melee ability dmg from Weapon Spec. and the full 50% from Five Rings.
a 99.3% increase to all ability dmg is attractive, but is this too good to be true?

The tooltips don't specifically say they share the cap, but both mentioning the same procced attacks surely makes me wonder if they do.

In that case, a build more like:
http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0ckum.vV0zaRzG.yf0szAzco.V
would cap out that bonus but leave the remainder of the build basically the same.

At this moment, I could care less about the overall build values, pros, or cons; I really just want to understand the game mechanics better and know if the two passives will stack.

From my observations they do NOT share a cap with each other and are only capped within the scope of their own effects. So you couldn't make Five Rings give you more than 50% but you should be able to stack them the way you're doing here
