I think you should assume that the theoretical Pseudo-Elements spec
doesn't exist, and that pseudo-elements are defined in the various
layout specs related to them, e.g.
   ::before and ::after in Generated Content
   ::shadow and ::first-line in Scoped Styles
   ::first-letter in Text, maybe?
   ::selection and ::placeholder in UI
and Selectors can just index them all. We might not actually do this,
but that's kindof where we're at right now.
