:visited already exists and is commonly used; dropping it entirely isn't realistic.

There've been discussions (off-list, I think) about figuring out ways to expose :visited styling "safely" in some contexts: allow it to work normally for same-origin links; or remember what links you *actually clicked* from a given domain, or visited *from* with a Referer header (and thus, what history could have been snooped on via JS or server code anyway), and let it work normally for those links, etc.
