cc @gregwhitworth who is a long-proponent of a similar solution.

I was initially skeptical but then found some cases where this would be useful; all in all I would be in favor of such a change to :matches. 

FWIW one such example is that sometime you need to apply some form of css reset for an element to work properly (because it comes from another framework and doesn't like the fact you override flex-direction to column by default for all elements) so you want to unset flex-direction again inside that element but doing so means that the reset will override any selector targeting the content of the element if its selector is less specific than the selector you use to target the reset root.
