You must not have been paying attention to the ::first-line discussions.
Peter Moulder was very serious when he suggested removing it from CSS2.1
for underdefinition. I don't think it makes sense to create more things
that "behave like" ::first-line until ::first-line has a solid definition.
I.e. one that passes muster by the likes of bzbarsky, dbaron, Anton Prowse,
and Peter Moulder.
