Well,

  <a xlink:href="http://host/#target">link</a>

Most UAs will try to jump to the beginning of the addressed fragment
when the user follows such a link. They know where they should go as
they know which links are :visited and wich are :not(:visited).

I strongly agree here, I'd liked the :subject pseudo-class very much.
Why has it been removed?

One thing to add,

[...]
  THIS IS A SOMEWHAT LONG HTML PARAGRAPH THAT
  will be broken into several lines. The first

  <p><p::first-line> This is a somewhat long HTML 
  paragraph that will </p::first-line>
[...]

in section 7.1 (several times), I think this error is an errata item for
CSS Level 2.
