But ::selection was in a Candidate Recommendation of selectors,
which means we've ok'ed shipping without vendor prefixes:
http://www.w3.org/TR/2001/CR-css3-selectors-20011113/#UIfragments
And it was shipped as CR in November 2001 and not removed from the
spec (as published on the TR page) until March 2009.

That said, I'd like to know how existing implementations handle the
issues in
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2008Oct/0268.html ,
which I think covers the main areas where the spec for ::selection
was underdefined.  (Do they use one of the proposals there, do they
violate some of the requirements that led to those proposals, or
something else?)
