We have both active and inactive foreground and background colors (so 4 total possible different colors).  If the pseudo element specifies only a background color and not a foreground color, we'll use the platform foreground color (and vice versa).  Any specified selection colors in the pseudo element will be used in both the active and inactive states.

That doesn't really explain the behavior I see with "background: none" 
vs "background: transparent"... (which should give equivalent specified 
values, note).
