This sentence can't just be dropped, it must be replaced with something
that is worded extremely carefully. What about:

p::before::before::before { content: "Hello, world!" }

p:not(::first-line)::after { content: ")" }

li::marker::marker { color: red }

If pseudo-elements can occur more than once, there needs to be some
definition of what it actually *means*.
