I have just posted [1] a request for
clarification/modification of HTML 4 that may have a side
effect on CSS selectors: the hreflang attribute is unable
today to reflect the fact that a target URL can have more
than one base language. We need a way to specify that.

On the CSS side, this could trigger the need for a light
adaptation of the [*|=*] attribute selector and of the
:lang*() pseudo-class to match the corresponding HTML4
modification. Such a change would hopefully have no impact
on existing stylesheets, given the nature of the proposed
change.

I'd like to hear back from the HTML WG before elaborating
any scenario about this.
