Well, yes. I reckon there are very few problems that cannot be 
solved by the use of APIs that don't exist anywhere yet :) 

And will only come to exist at a cost far higher than supporting 
this notation. No wonder you think the fix is so expensive. You
expect 1) a whole new API to be designed 2) implemented across
enough browsers so that 3) developers can switch to it.

Fixing this simple issue should not depend on refactoring CSSOM.
