Is there a particular reason why `:ws-only` would be unacceptable? It contains what would be a new abbreviation in CSS, but it is much pithier while remaining semantically ambiguous, from what I can tell.

In addition, though perhaps less importantly, `:whitespace-only` is inconsistent with the already-introduced `white-space` CSS property, which considers “white space” to be a two-word phrase.

(My apologies if this particular option has already been discussed; I could find no mention of “ws-only” in this GitHub repository, the www-style archives, or the web in general. I can only imagine the tedious bikeshedding that has been occurring for the past four-to-five years.)
