That reasoning is true for all pseudo-elements. For instance, '::after' only lets you add a single box at the end of an element's content, and removes your ability to use ::after for some other purpose. One could also argue that most actual use of ::before and ::after are hacks. 

The "hacks" described above would be nearly as useful as ::before and ::after, in a wide variety of circumstances.
