... and not. And, for now, ':not' only supports simple selectors (not combinators), and that it's kinda ugly and ineffective to write 'or' using commas. Also, it doesn't do quite the same thing in term of cascading (pseudo-class vs true branching).

So, yes, there is a reason why fully empowered :and/:or/:not would be useful.
