This made me think that :parent selector would be both useful and fast 
if it would be limited to the situation when parent has only *one* 
child. I.e.:

     :link:parent img {
       border: none;
     }

...would match only in cases like `<a><img/></a>` (may be with 
whitespace). This eliminates worries about multi-megabyte children 
collections. And even if this only child is multi-megabyte its opening 
tag is available immediately.
