I'd expect an exception if it doesn't meet the syntactic requirements for a pseudo-element. However, I guess that only really works if pseudo-elements won't gain arguments. Because at that point it's ambiguous whether `before(...)` meets the constraints or not.

It's somewhat confusing though that this issue uses "unknown" and the TAG review issue uses ":unknown". Does "before" work? Does ":before"? Does "::before"? Is there a formal definition of this method somewhere?
