Sounds like a request for a selector to me, not a request to improve the
content property... That is, why is the content property particularly special
in this case?  This could apply to any property, as far as I see.  E.g.  I
could want to bold a term the first time it's used (and provide the extra
text), but not other times....

If Gladstone fell into the Thames, it would be a
misfortune.  But if someone dragged him out again, it
would be a calamity."
