Forget about “1/1000 of specificity”, and read my next post. Selectors inside a `*:matches()` function would always lose to those outside it, just as class selectors always lose to ID selectors. What could go wrong? 

I just think that you can have your cake and eat it too, by doing it the way I described. The cascade would be internally very useful still, without hecking up anything outside of the function. We don’t have to throw the baby out with the bath water.
