@astearns Yes on the cost, but the benefit is more than just more expressive styling; the current :visited hacks aren't totally secure, and still offer some ways to exfiltrate visitedness. This would be finally closing those holes, limited though they may be. It also simplifies styling code, at the cost of more complex visitedness tracking.
