This problem statement is too brief for me to follow you. Could you
elaborate? I note that the core grammar is quite clear that you can
not use { or } at all in selectors and (), [] only properly nested.
How is your problem different from e.g. using ";" or "<!--" "in a
selector"? There are many things about parsing style sheets and the
components of them left undefined, why would we need to address the
issue you are raising in CSS 2.1?
