> A "draft" is NOT a standard. Second, Selectors 4 have never been in CR, and :matches() has never been in a REC-track version of Selectors 3. So this is yet another occurrence of vendors potentially disturbing standardization with a "shipped, can't change" argument and, holy cow it's 2018, could vendors please stop doing that? Oh but wait, it's not even shipped yet, an "intent to ship" is not "shipped". It smells far too much like 1997 Microsoft and, fortunately, Microsoft stopped doing that two decades ago.

Very well said!

Btw, may I remind you all that gradients were shipped **everywhere** and we changed their syntax for much less serious reasons than those described here.
