> @ExE-Boss The question may be, if we can redesign CSS, should we drop `.foo` and ask everyone use `[class~=foo]` instead?

Considering that we can’t redesign CSS and that CSS&#x2011;like languages (for&nbsp;example: [Qt&nbsp;Style&nbsp;Sheets](https://doc.qt.io/qt-5/stylesheet.html)) make use of that shorthand, I don’t think we can do that.

Also, when it comes to IDs and classes, they’re also a part of XML, whereas the custom elements `is` attribute is only a part of HTML.
