@dylanb I see your problem, that you need a unique selector to identify any element in the whole tree.

I'm not sure that "there should be at least one selector to uniquely identify any element in shadow-including document", is a requirement for CSS selectors or not. Without shadow, apparently you can use `>` and all the tree from `document` to give a path to uniquely identify any element.

So for completeness for that requirement, having 2 different combinator for "one-shadow' and "multiple-shadows" makes sense.

@tabatkins do you have any idea whether such a requirement exists, or makes sense?
