I mean, that's one of many inconsistencies:

I think this should be treated as we normally do in such situations: the contents of the outdated snapshot are not relevant to implementers, especially given that neither of the editors seem active anymore.

Subject: query methods should throw SyntaxError

The two DOM specs are inconsistent:
   http://www.w3.org/TR/dom/#scope-match-a-selectors-string

says to throw a TypeError whereas
   https://dom.spec.whatwg.org/#scope_match-a-selectors-string

says to throw a SyntaxError.
