I've seen a few of these mails go by, and I'm not sure why we're trying 
to treat the problem as a nail that we can hit with our "existing CSS 
selectors" hammer...

If the constraint we want can't be expressed in existing CSS, we should 
perhaps not be expressing it in CSS, right?

For what it's worth, Gecko happens to support a -moz-first-node selector 
that I think expresses what you're trying to get at here...
