Wait. Benjamin says WebKit already supports pseudo-elts in matches() and
that's not at all in the spec, undiscussed. Benjamin, we need you to
explain us what your colleague did, and I'd like to be sure this is
not going to be shipped BEFORE we discuss AND stabilize it... Ahem.

Can we please avoid going back to implementations and shipping
preceding even minimal standardization?
