I do not see any approach for this that would break the circularity discussed above. Yes, it is unfortunate that CSS has this architectural limitation, but it does have it, and selectors cannot switch between matching or not matching depending on the result of layout.

This isn't a matter of cleverly playing with the syntax, it is a matter of what this means. In the general model of how CSS works, this does not make sense.

I am afraid the only thing we can do here is to close as WONTFIX.
