Well... Will such a decision remove the tons of existing stylesheets
with existing foo-of-bar pseudos ? Clearly no. Browser vendors will
have to support both writings.

Furthermore, I think that not-first-child is much more user

more readable for people who are not native english speakers.

My personal opinion of course, not WG's.
