In the last version of this specification, section 6.6.6. defined the 
:contains() pseudo-class. This pseudo-class has been removed from the 
draft (due to lack of implementations), but we did not wish to renumber 
all the sections as this would cause references to this specification to 
become stale and incorrect. (The specification has existed with the 
current section numbers for over five years, and references to it exist 
in many places.)

Please let me know if this explanation does not satisfy you.
