That belief only exists within the small ivory tower known as "The  
CSS Working Group". To those of us who actually use the stuff for  
work, that distinction is a totally moot political statement of  
interest only standards people with too much time on their hands:  
selectors are, and will always be, "CSS".

That's why if you want to address the needs of us folks as opposed to  
your own politico-religious quibbling, calling it something along the  
lines of matchCSS makes most sense.
