Hi Ian,

I also thought about this issue (though not absolutely referring of the
tenet you mentioned), and I initially wanted to suggest anything like 'E < F',
but this seemed misleadingly analog to the child selector, I guess.

Well, am I right assuming that the problem I outlined is solved by e.g.

    h1:has(h1 > div)

or do I got it wrong? -- If that's correct, I of course favor this
suggestion as a more than appropriate replacement for the 'E - F' idea ;)
