Mounir,

I believe what Stefan wants is to style fields that are empty, but not necessarily required, different so input:required:invalid is not going to work in this situation.

This use case can already be solved like this:
input:required:invalid {
}

Assuming you are using the required attribute as specified in HTML.

Regarding the general proposal. That might be useful assuming there are
use cases different from the one above.
