I wonder why (probably because I don't know that much about how a UA 
processes a style sheet).

It would select every element that currently isn't a link. Then it tries 
to create a link using

 link:url(foo);

If attribute "foo" contains a valid URI, the link is created and the 
selector doesn't apply anymore. If attribute "foo" contains an invalid 
URI... was that your issue?
