What about `:and()`? It's short, it seems intuitive (a conjunction of two conditions, the target element should match both main _and_ additional part), but in the same time it separates the selector into the non-parenthesized and parenthesized parts, implying that the latter is "special" (so its specificity might 
be not counted as usually).

Though it might look a bit odd in the beginning of the selector, the general rule that absence of the elemental selector means `*` should help to understand the intent to express the selector that has the specificity of the universal selector (i.e. zero) _and_ still selects only specific elements...
