Hi Sebastian,

thanks for pointing us to the issue tracker and for your first answer.

I don't think that `:first-of-type` is a solution for 
@christin-goetz's requirement as it does not take into account the 
current position on the page (which may be unequal to the current 
position in the DOM).

Say weh have the following structure:
and the following css snippet
heading {
    margin-top: 2em;

The `h2` element should display WITH margin top when rendered 
somewhere on the page, surrounded by paragraphs. But it should render 
WITHOUT margin top when it is the first item on the new page.

The `:first-of-type` selector would only match the first occurance of 
`h2` regardless of whether or not it is rendered at the bottom or as 
the first item on the page. And it wouldn't even match the 2nd 

Did this example made our point clearer?
