:any() is an experimental pseudo-class, but we have the same problem 
with some vendors pseudo-element, like ::-moz-tree-row for example. You 
could write:

    ::-moz-tree-row(readonly, unread)

Here, we see the need of many expressions.

But of course, expressions are selectors with the pseudo-class :any(). 
But :any() can be see as a macro and not a CSS function… It's another 
fact :-).

By the way. Is a new CSS selector specification on the way?

Best regards.
