`:if` has a strong procedural meaning whereas `:where` has not and I share your fear that `:if` may or may not become useful for other purposes in future.

What about `:initial()` then. It behaves similiar to resetting a bunch of values to `property: initial`.
/* Some basic/reset stylesheet */
a:initial(.toggled) { color: green; }

/* Some concrete stylesheet */
a { color: red }
