Not relevant here.  The CSS WG is wondering whether elements should be 
able to inherit style from some pseudo-elements, and what the 
"pseudo-element tree" should look like.  That has no bearing on the DOM 
tree, on which querySelector operates.

Put another way, applied CSS styles can't affect selector matching. 
This is not changing in CSS, you will note.
