@tabatkins before you could use XPath to achieve a unique address, once `:nth*` appeared you could use a combination of descendant selectors and `:nth-*`

There has been a way to uniquely address any node in a document for a very long time without having to change the document and add IDs (with the exception of IE) and that is now no longer possible with shadow DOM
