Test case: http://jsfiddle.net/n45k9/112/ (seems to be specific for links indeed) -- @bzbarsky @smaug

Well, <a href="https://html.spec.whatwg.org/multipage/semantics-other.html#selector-active">it is</a>. I guess the reason is the past only links used to be :active things, so I'm fairly sure there is a bunch of content that depends on a specific behavior for active on links that might actually be different from other elements.
