Hi,

section 7.3:

[...]
  These are the CSS properties that apply to ::selection
  pseudo-elements:color, background, outline.
[...]

There is a missing white-space. Shouldn't this be

  'color', 'background', 'background-color', 'background-image',
  'background-position', 'background-attachment', 'background-repeat',
  'outline', 'outline-color', 'outline-style', 'outline-width'

? At least a comment, that not only the shorthand forms are allowed
should be inserted. Why is there such a serious restriction on the
applicable properties? At least the 'cursor' property could be added.

[...]
  The color of 'background-image' on ::selection may be ignored.
[...]

This sentence makes no sense to me.
