I think that's not realistic. When writing Gecko's new style engine we almost broke visited in some subtle ways and people noticed: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1417781

It'd be nice to do something like https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1398414, ensure it's web-compatible, ship it, and then :visited stops being a privacy issue at all and all this complexity goes away, but not sure that's going to be done any time soon.
